Public programs

The Museum's collections serve many purposes. The range of specimens on display form full of great learning  opportunities for visitors. The museum runs programs of activities for school groups, adults, community groups, persons with disabilities etc. Until a few years back, the museum was holding mobile science exhibitions in different villages, towns and schools for disseminating knowledge on conservation and to create interest on natural history of Nepal. Altogether 20 districts had been covered by the mobile science exhibition. This program was acclaimed by all.
