Naturalis plays the role of the national research institute in the field of biodiversity. Our highly qualified scientists are devoted to the systematic description, understanding, and preservation of the diversity of life forms on Earth on a daily basis.

At Naturalis, all components of the institute are now housed under one roof for the first time. With the development of Naturalis as the Dutch center for biodiversity, the amalgamation of various collections, and the growth in the number of researchers and museum visitors, there was a need for additional space.

The new Naturalis provides the opportunity to host a business event in a unique environment. The Auditorium is situated in the heart of the museum and, thanks to its beautiful oak interior, boasts fantastic acoustics. Naturalis is the perfect venue for a large presentation or conference. The Auditorium features a balcony that can be used to expand capacity as needed. Reception and breaks can be held in the spacious foyer. The venue is ideal for groups of up to 290 people.

The impressive Atrium of Naturalis is an excellent location for a grand party or dinner. During the day, daylight enters from all sides, and in the evening, the glass chandelier is spectacularly illuminated. The view of the museum's staircase is also impressive. The Atrium offers ample space and can accommodate up to 450 people in a dinner setup with round tables. In a party setup, without tables, it can host up to 1100 people.

In the LiveScience room, an event can be organized where science, education, and visitors come together. The large room is furnished with massive shelves containing hundreds of collection pieces, and in the center of the room, there is a platform where attendees can listen to researchers or other speakers. A suitable program can be tailored for every event, supported by scientists from Naturalis.
