The museum has an attractive design of premises. The botanical department presents an overview of the world of plants in Peru. Among the exhibits are remains of fossil trees, as well as samples of plants today.
The room dedicated to geosciences presents stones and minerals. The highlight of the museum is the representation of Peruvian wildlife. Due to its different scenic areas, Peru has a large number of animals that are rare in other countries.
There are animals that live in the jungle, others that are native to the Andes and, of course, living beings that live by the sea. You can see eyeglass bears, monkeys and various species of fish such as swordfish and sharks. Continue with crocodiles, snakes and a department where turtles can be observed. Do not forget the colorful birdlife of Peru.
Of course, the history of the Peruvian fauna is very old: dinosaur bones were found in the Amazon. As impressive as the skeleton of a whale is. A special finding is the fossil horse, which was excavated near Arequipa in the Andes, and the skull of a saber-toothed tiger, one of the largest extinct terrestrial predators on earth. In addition to the skeletons, reconstructions of the appearance of these animals are also shown.
