The State Museum for Natural Sciences (German: Staatliches Museum für Naturkunde, short: Naturkundemuseum) developed from the collection of the margravine Karoline Luise. The Karlsruhe Museum for Natural Science was founded in 1785. Today, the museum is located in Friedrichsplatz in the city's first Renaissance style building which was built by Weinbrenner's disciple Karl Joseph Berckmüller. It has exhibitions of fossils, minerals and prehistoric animals, as well as a vivarium containing reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates.
