Established in 1859 as a Department of the Transylvanian Museum Association, the Zoological Museum now has over 300,000 exhibits. As a scientific value and by the number of preserved copies, the Zoological Museum ranks second, after the "Gr. Antipa '' Bucharest.

The museum on the ground floor of the Faculty of Biology consists of the actual exhibition, a section of scientific collections, accessible only to specialists, and the Museum's reserve, where the exhibition completes. The native species are exhibited, but also many exhibits of exotic fauna.

We can see corals, pearl shells, African scorpions, sea stars, African electric fish, marine snake, desert chicken, paradise bird, hummingbird, ladybug, giraffe, big cats and more. Exposure mode shows aspects of animal behavior. For example, we can see the steps of silk thread silk making, or the life of reed birds, etc.

The scientific collections are in a separate room where the results of several researchers, former teachers or university students are presented. In the basic exhibition there are also rarities from the animal world, such as the nautil, which is found only in the Pacific Ocean, the New Zealand kiwi bird, or the bearded eagle and the bald eagle, two species extinct from our country's fauna.
