Zoological Museum "P. Doderlein"
The Zoological Museum "P. Doderlein ”collects collections containing several thousand specimens of Invertebrates and Vertebrates. Dating back to the second half of the nineteenth century, the Mediterranean Fish collection stands out, preserved according to a special chemical treatment, which remained secret, which preserved its physical and aesthetic characteristics.
Visiting the collections contributes significantly to understanding animal diversity and biological evolution and highlights the need for conservation of natural environments. The museum, an important reference point for scientific culture and a center for the study and conservation of Sicilian and Mediterranean zoological material, thanks to its particular structure, offers visitors the same atmosphere in which Zoology scholars worked in the second half of the nineteenth century.
