The Natural History Museum is the oldest museum in Berne. From the beginning, we are financially supported by the Burgergemeinde Bern, which has allowed the existence of the firm since over 180 years. Another substantial support comes from the Museum's Society. Here you'll learn more about the background of our institution.
