The museum is full of birds, fish, reptiles, mammals, shells, and insects. All types of fossils found in the Netherlands can be seen in the special exhibition ‘Picked up Dredged Hammered’. There is also a fine cabinet of curiosities and an interactive exhibition that displays how animals and plants adapt in our cities creating a fascinating urban ecology. There is always something new to see in our programme of temporary exhibitions.
