The Natural History Museum of Alava

The Natural History Museum of Alava, which depends on the Department of Culture of the Provincial Council of Alava, opened its doors to the public for the first time in May 1986. Despite its youth, the museum contains major geological, botanical and zoological collections with more than half a million references.

The museum is divided into three large sections arranged on two floors: One is dedicated to Geology: Petrology, Mineralogy, Palaeontology of vertebrates, Palaeontology of invertebrates, General Geology. The other is dedicated to Botany and Zoology: Cryptogam botany, Phanerogam botany, the Zoology of invertebrates and the Zoology of vertebrates.
