Comments / pictures

Naturalis Biodiversity Center is a national museum of natural history and a research center on biodiversity in Leiden, Netherlands. Its collection includes approximately 37 million specimens, making it one of the largest natural history collections in the world.

2018-2019: The museum, except the research facilities, was closed from September 2018 to mid 2019 due to renovations. Temporary exhibitions were held in the Pesthuis (historical Plague hospital) entrance building during the renovations.

Although its current name and organization are relatively recent, the history of Naturalis can be traced back to the early 1800s.

Among other elephants on exhibit, African savanna elephant Kito, who died 2017-03-13 in heart failure at Dvur Kralove Zoo, Czech Republic, is presently on display in the diorama of "Life".
