Natural History Museum

in detail

On the 15th of March 2013, a completely redesigned Natural History Museum with a greatly enlarged exhibition space opened in the Joanneum Quarter. It houses fascinating exhibitions by all the natural sciences departments of the Joanneum Universal Museum.

In autumn 2009, the scientific workrooms, libraries, laboratories, workshops and collections of Botany, Geology & Palaeontology, Mineralogy and Zoology moved to the Centre of Natural History in Andritz, Graz. You can get in touch with Joanneum scientists there personally to ask for expert information. You can also visit lectures, courses and seminars at the Centre

The Joanneum Quarter Project (1997–2011)
On November 26, 2011, exactly two hundred years to the day that the Universalmuseum Joanneum was founded – the Joanneum Quarter has been opened. This new cultural centre on a historical plot of land unites the historical museum and library buildings in Rauber-, Neutor- and Kalchberggasse into one architectural entity. Retaining the original character of the individual buildings, the new centre creates an urban piazza for Graz Old Town that is situated above an underground visitors’ centre. The Neue Galerie Graz, the Multimedia Collections and the Styrian State Library commence operations from the day they open at their newly designed location. The Natural History Museum in the Raubergasse building will open early in 2013.
