Natural Sciences

The natural sciences collections of National Museums NI hold more than half a million specimens from Northern Ireland and beyond. Mighty whales and tiny snails, flowers and fungi, fossils and meteorites—these are just a few of the diverse specimens that we hold. Many of the finest are on display. Others form a huge reference collection for scientists and other museum users to consult.
