Collection(s)Aurel Filimon's collection laid the foundation of the natural sciences department of the museum in Târgu Mureş, opened in 1934. In 1939, the Octavian Goga Museum of Natural History was established on the basis of this collection. A large part of the collection was destroyed in 1944. A monument of architecture dating from the 19th century, the building was built for housing the Industrial Museum. The exhibits include collections of mineralogy; petrography; palaeontology; botany (herbs from 1872), anthropology, geology, zoology (the Carpathian stag trophy - the second most valuable in the world), malacology (local and exotic pieces), entomology (exotic butterflies - Weber W, local butterflies - V. Vicol, E. Halabori); ornithology; zoology; osteology.
