Initiatives for the promotion of naturalistic culture
Naturalistic soirÚes: the museum sponsors a series of conferences in the Spring and in the Autumn, video presentations on topics such as zoology, sea biology, anthropology, geology and others. The participation is free of charge.

Every year at the end of the Winter, the Museum is open, free to museum guests to learn more about the scientific activities conducted by the museum, normally not accessible to the public.
