The Museum of Nature and Ecology of Belarus was established in 1983 as a nature department of the State Museum of the BSSR, and since 1992 the museum has become a separate museum and was named the State Museum of Nature and Ecology of the Republic of Belarus. Since September 2014 – it is a branch of the National Historical Museum. However, the museum itself has its own separate exhibition halls. These are buildings on Bogdanovich 9A and Kazinets 117. Now temporary exhibition projects are working there. In total, 42 thousand units are kept in the funds of the Museum of Nature and Ecology, and annually the museum is visited by more than 100 thousand people, more than 2700 excursions are conducted. The museum has six exhibition halls. Each hall is characterized by its own theme, which sanctifies the Belarusian nature. Until July 31, 2016, the permanent exhibition of the museum features the exhibition “Jungle behind the Glass”, where visitors can see exotic species of lizards, snakes and spiders. The first hall – “Seasonal changes in the animal world and in nature” – is devoted to seasonal changes in nature. Belarus is located in a temperate climatic zone, so it is characterized by the seasons of the year. This room demonstrates how different kinds of animals adapted to the changes of the seasons. In winter it becomes cold, and winter species of birds come to Belarus from the tundra and forest-tundra: a horse-riding horse and a bunch of sandpipers. Sedent species of birds do not depart anywhere: they are siskin, pika, woodpecker, landslide.
