Museum of Paleontology-Stratigraphy of the Faculty of Biology-Geology of UBB is based on museum collections (Erdélyi Múzeum Egyesület) which was founded in 1859. Geologist A. Koch, head of the geology and paleontology founded The museum of paleontology, which currently has over 50,000 exhibits. We can see vestiges of dinosaurs, including eggs, skeletal remains of the largest known mammals, a collection of 200 fossil species, described for the first time in Transylvania, or the world's oldest rhinocerid (Prohyracodon orientale).

The collection in the inner courtyard of the University includes eruptive, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, and even giant fossils (rudites). There are basalt columns from Racos, or a stalagmite formation in the Onceasa Cave.
