The Georgia Museum of Natural History is an important center of natural history research. 

For almost a century, the University of Georgia has been a center of research in natural history related to the state, the region, and the world. To a large extent the quality of this research is based upon the information and knowledge associated with the 11 collections affiliated with the Georgia Museum of Natural History. These collections represent research conducted in dozens of fields of study. They are crucial for graduate research and training programs in their respective academic departments. Each year the personnel associated with these collections generate approximately 100 scientific publications and average over $1,500,000 in contracts and grants. The collections themselves represent voucher specimens for the research and the data associated with each of the collections contains an important base for future research. 

The Museum gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday 10 am to 11 am and again from 1 pm to 4 pm. We are closed on weekends and University holidays. For questions email
