ABOUT US:

Zhejiang Museum of Natural History is one of the few provincial-level museums in natural history in China. Its predecessor, the West Lake Museum, was born out of the first West Lake Exposition in 1929. During the past 80 years, it has played an active role in protecting natural heritage, popularizing science, conducting academic researches and promoting cultural exchange, and so forth. The new Museum, covering an area of 26,000 square meters, was officially opened to the public for free in July, 2009.

Zhejiang Museum of Natural History is located in the center of Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. Hotels and restaurants are conveniently located near the museum. The Museums current facility opened in 2009 and has a lecture room and several meeting rooms.  Zhejiang Museum of Nature History houses over 3000 dinosaur eggs and other dinosaur fossils.
