Exploring nature can be either a hobby or a profession,
or even both at the same time. Exploring is, in fact, the driving force
behind the very existence of natural sciences museums: exploring to know
and exploring to learn.
In 2008, the Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona launched the Bioexplora programme with the aim of producing exhibitions, publications and activities based on exploring nature. Bioexplore is a recently invented term that has become a catch word meaning to explore biodiversity.
Bioexplora is now a website. It hosts dynamic and interactive proposals and projects that share a common theme: bioexploring, that is, exploring nature and also exploring the Museum.
The Museum is a box of surprises. Its collections, research and public programmes are a constant source of inspiration. Emerging knowledge is highly diverse and the Museum is committed to finding new ways of sharing this more effectively.
On Bioexplora you can find information about temporary exhibitions that explore nature, and links where you can contact the Museum’s scientific departments to request further information or to collaborate on projects. This website also displays the scientific journals that are published by the Museum.

“EXPLORERS: ADVENTURE AND BIODIVERSITY”
“Explorers: adventure and biodiversity”. A temporary exhibition (28th October 2009 – 31st May 2010) that opened at the Sala de la Balena hall in the Zoology building within the context of two significant dates: 2009, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his major work on the origin of the species, and 2010, the International Year of Biodiversity.

This section highlights the latest exhibition and posts news on past exhibitions and future proposals relating to the study of biodiversity.
A person who bioexplores is someone who searches across multiple data sources, such as the collections in natural sciences museums. Bioexplores do this type of search with the mindset of sharing, contributing and collaborating on collective projects.
The Natural Sciences Museum of Barcelona was founded in 1882. Since its
very beginnings, the Museum has published a wide range of scientific journals
covering many scientific disciplines in natural sciences.
