Founded in 1965, the Goulandris Natural History Museum is home to zoological, botanical, marine, rock, mineral and fossil specimens. The Gaia Centre for Environmental Research & Education, founded in 2001, provides the unique opportunity to the visitor to get acquainted with Earth, the diversity of its landscapes, flora and fauna, via new interactive technologies, and understand the impact of human activity on the environment.

The laboratories of the museum focus on gathering, recording and studying botanical, zoological, geological and fossil specimens from the Greek territory. The museum’s collections are thus constantly enriched with new specimens. Moreover, the Gaia Centre includes two state of the art laboratories of Soil Ecology, and Biotechnology and Bioanalytical Chemistry which deal with the research of vital natural resources: soil, water and air, and their impact on human health and nutrition.

The amenities of the museum also include: a rich library with extensive scientific material in the fields of environmental sciences,2 café-bar restaurants as well as fully equipped halls suitable for hosting conferences, congresses, seminars and corporate presentations
