About NHM

The Natural History Museum at the University of Oslo is Norway’s most comprehensive natural history collection. For almost 200 years, preserved plant specimens, animal specimens, rocks, minerals and fossils have been collected, studied and preserved here.

A selection of specimens are on display for the general public.

The Botanical Garden, part of the Museum, is not only popular for recreation, but is a scientific collection in itself.
