Nature's diversity is the object of the research at NHM. From Norway's largest natural history collections, we aim for a deeper understanding of how long time evolutionary and geological processes have shaped our world. Our National Centre of Biosystematics is internationally renowned. The Arctic is a main area of interest.
The Natural History Museum does research on biological and geological diversity and the evolutionary processes involved in creating this diversity. The scientific collections constitutes the basis for our research and are the most comprehensive in Norway comprising a total of 6.2 million objects.
