The Wet Collections
After three years of construction, the East Wing was opened in September 2010, one of the most technically advanced collection buildings in the world, housing scientific wet collections. The 276 000 vials containing approximately one million animals are stored in 80 tonnes of ethanol under conditions meeting up-to-date safety standards. The East Wing has been included in our Museum tour, giving visitors an insight into a state-of-the art reseach collection that is used by scientists on a daily basis.
