Museum of Natural History

 

The Museum of Natural History at the University of Cauca was founded in September 1936 by biologist Frederick Charles Lehman, born in Popayán, who donated his private collection of birds and mammals, which contained about 100 specimens. A representative sample of the fauna and flora of Cauca and other regions of Colombia and the world can be seen here.
