Centre de recherche scientifique du Musée national d'histoire naturelle


The scientific research centre of the National Museum of Natural History of Luxembourg was created by the grand-ducal regulation of the 10th November 1982. Its aim is to carry out research in every domain of the natural patrimony and to contribute to its conservation.

The research activities concern the fields of botany, ecology, geology-mineralogy, geophysics-astrophysics, palaeontology, population biology, vertebrate and invertebrate zoology. The museum staff conducts the research activities in co-operation with research associates and external scientists.
