The Zoological Museum is open

The Zoological Museum is open and a big surprise is waiting for you!

Maintenance work in the basement will, however, continue until the end of November. This part of the museum will therefore remain closed until then. Guided tours on Sundays, workshops and birthday parties will be available as of January 2021.

A Showcase for the University

With its permanent exhibition, special exhibitions and numerous events, in addition to special offers for schools and groups, the Zoological Museum of the University of Zurich contributes an important part to the education and the independent formation of public opinion. It raises awareness and enthusiasm for the beauty, diversity and value of nature. The museum considers itself the university’s showcase and promotes the understanding of university research and its function within the general population.
