The Museum of Natural History of Nepal is one of the marvels of Kathmandu. Situated at a walking distance from the National Museum, the museum will fall in your right-hand while going towards Swayambhunath hills. The Museum of Natural History has a very interesting collection of various species of the fauna and flora from across the Himalayan kingdom. The museum has various types of amphibians, mammals, reptiles and invertebrates in its collection. While many of these organisms have been stuffed, a lot of them are preserved in a chemical called Formaldehyde that is popularly known as Formalyne.

There is a separate section for insects too that contains various insects collected from the nook and corners of Himalayas. Many of these species are now extinct. The same is true for various species of mammals and other amphibians. All of these displays are organized as per their evolution. It has a separate section for plants too. This section contains various herbs and grasses that grow in Himalayas and Tarai region. This section is not as comprehensive as the section on fauna but is equally interesting. The museum is slowly picking up on the tourist map but is in dire straits because of the lack of fund. If you are a biologist then this place is a boon for you. If you are not, then also this place is worth visiting.
