Naturmuseum Neuberg Neuberg an der Murz Reviews
Small, but pretty museum Sep 08, 2008
The Naturmuseum Neuberg is a collection of stuffed animals, butterflies and other insects. It also has some stones as exhibits.
The story behind the Museum is this: Professor Schliefsteiner, who was a talented painter painted a lot of animals and all the time he collected stuffed animals from all over the world. Sometimes people offered him their animals for paintings. And since he was from Neuberg, the Museum is there.
Some of the animals are almost extinct, and I have never seen some of them up close. It was amazing to see how small wolves are, and how large Capricorns are. The exhibits are sorted by their habitat-area, i.e. the alpine animals, the african savannah and so on.
The Lady who works there is really informed and knows everything about each bird and mouse... and she is really nice. They also sell some souvenirs, like animal shaped pens and prints of Mr.Schliefsteiners paintings.
The entry costs 4 euros for grown-ups and there are reductions for students. The museum is open from april to november. And if you are in the area, its really worth a visit.
