The museum’s founding dates back to 1961 when the Municipality granted the Naturalistic Speleological Society of Maremma a temporary space in which to host the material they had collected. It was founded in response to an immensely successful exhibition organized in 1967. The Civic Museum of Natural History of Grosseto aims to document the natural environment of the Maremma area and raise public awareness regarding disciplines linked to natural science. Visitors can view various collections of minerals, stones, fossils, animals and plants, which are either displayed behind glass or can be seen thanks to three-dimensional replicas. This collection was once kept in the building that hosted a city-run pre-school, built in 1982. It is currently being transferred to a new headquarters.
