The museum was opened as a zoological museum in 1846 with the name "Gabinetto Zoologico Zootomico" and set in Palazzo Biserini in Piazza Hortis in 1852, where has coexisted with the Civic Library and the literary museums until 2010. In 1855, under the protectorate of Archduke Ferdinand Maximilian, the museum was renamed "Civico Museo Ferdinand Maximilian". Through many donations and as a result of several international expeditions, the museum has developed a range of exhibits. While keeping a zoological address, it now has flora, geological, and paleontological specimens and a large library containing works in various languages.
In 2010, the museum moved to the new headquarter in via Cumano, next to Civico Museo della Guerra per la Pace Diego de Henriquez, with whom is part of an only museum center.

Great experience! Visited with small kids (age 3,5,7) and they enjoyed it ! We as parents had of course to explain whats going on, but they were interested in exhibition. Most of all we enjoyed dinosaur, fish( whale and shark) and elephant. Recomended to visit!
It's just awesome! Be sure that you visit this place while you are in Trieste. I visited this place just before I left Trieste. So I had kind of thought that I could have visited this museum a couple of times to learn and explore more. Anyways, I strongly recommend this museum 😊
