A Premier Natural History Museum

With more than 10,000,000 zoological specimens - from stuffed dodos to giant aurochs - the University of Copenhagen Zoological Museum boasts an estimated 10% of all animals that have ever lived on Earth. This magnificent museum offers exhibitions that describe the animals, in all their diversity and throughout their evolution. It is a teaching museum - doctoral students study there - so the displays reflect the cutting edge of zoological research. Polar species are particularly well-represented (remember that Greenland is part of Denmark). Don't forget to visit the gift shop, which includes posters, postcards, stuffed animals and books.
