Natural History and Taxidermy Museum

Hamedan Natural History Museum

Hamedan Natural History Museum

a huge collection of extinct animals!

Professor Jafar Mohammad Alizadeh built this museum and all the specimens have been collected by him and some interested students. During its 28-year of activity, the Hamedan Museum of Natural History has discovered some specimens for the first time in the country, but proving that they are also unique around the world requires further research. For example, the discovery of five new species of Persian Gulf fish and several specimens of fossils was first reported by the museum. Currently, in addition to tourists and researchers, many groups of students visit this museum every year.
