Zoological Museum at the University of Zurich

There is quacking, shrieking, grunting and chirping at the University of Zurich’s Zoological Museum. The museum is home to 1.500 animals and many can be heard.

From the Large Frogmouth to the Minke whale and from the Trichia villosa to the common wombat, the animal world features a vast range of forms and colors here.

There is a lot to experience: hearing singing whales and buzzing insects over the headphones. Seeing the small mouth of an ant or hairy legs of a spider through a magnifying glass. And stroking the fur of a deer or wild boar.
