The Museo de Historia Natural URP was founded in 1991 to preserve and research the rich Peruvian biodiversity and at the same time make the general public aware about the countries natural treasures. The museum has two exhibition rooms displaying a wide variety of botanical, zoological and paleontological  samples.

A visit is a great way to get an excellent overview of Peruvian flora and fauna. And don't miss the dinosaur fossils. Impressive!
