Zoological Museum Overview

If you’re a nature lover keen on learning more about wildlife, look no further because the Zoological Museum should top your list of must-visit tourist places in Zurich. Tucked away in the University of Zurich, the Zoological Museum is home to over 1500 animals and even a day doesn’t seem enough to observe it all.

Be it the Large Frogmouth or the Minke Whale, every kind of species can be spotted here and learnt more about. With Switzerland tour packages experience the wonder of the animal kingdom like the buzz of the insects, the chirping of birds, quacking and grunting, all of this can be heard through headphones as you stroll through the expansive space.

Watch smaller creatures closely through a magnifying glass, stroke the fur of a wild boar, and be a part of the numerous exhibitions and events that the museum organises. The museum aims to spread awareness about the diversity of nature while also contributing to education, especially in the fields of botany and zoology.
