The National Museum of Natural Sciences is one of the most important scientific research institutes in the country in the scope of natural sciences.
With over 70 researchers as part of the staff in areas ranging from paleobiology and geology to ecology and climate change including environmental biology and biodiversity, the Museum is one of the emblematic centres of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).
Our aim is to convey to society the knowledge generated by our researchers. We count on, for that purpose, our highly qualified professionals dedicated to the scientific collections and art exhibitions that the Museum houses, enabling explanations of scientific discoveries for the visiting public. We are thrilled to stimulate our visitors who can enjoy their time learning about our planet and how it has changed, about the tremendous diversity it has been home to, from the origin of life to the present.
Welcome to one of the oldest natural history Museums in the world!
