The Museum of Natural History in Trieste/Trst was founded in 1846. It is divided into two sections: one is open to the public and the other is reserved for specialists. The museum displays various collections: zoological, botanic, mineral, geological and paleontological.  A new department hosts a section on the evolution of hominids and displays many important casts of fossil hominids, including the famous “Lucy”.
