The Naturalistic Museum of Colfiorito Regional Park houses a permanent exhibit consisting of panels, dioramas, entomological boxes, and 3D landscape reproductions.
The bird section has been enriched with the Piscini collection (a taxidermist from the Province of Macerata), with its 52 stuffed bird specimens representing the most significant species of the marsh and the surrounding environments, including a specimen of particular value like the Eurasian Bitter (Botaurus stellaris), a symbol species of the Park.
The Museum mainly has didactic aims: it plays an important integration function between man and natural environment with the promotion of educational, sensitization, and scientific research activities. Moreover, the Museum houses a multimedia hall suitable for projections and conferences, as well as a didactic lab equipped with microscopes and housing a complete herbarium of the Park flora, organized to welcome students and people fond of natural science.
