    Nature and Forest Museum is housed in a modern building, which in an innovative and attractive manner exhibits natural collections, ranging from zoology, through botany ending with the historical use of the forest. Processes characteristic for the Białowieża National Park receive particular focus. 
    Permanent exposition presents the most native forest communities of the forest, including riverine forest, alder carr, deciduous lime-hornbeam-oak forest, pine forest, boreal spruce bog), ecological processes (e.g. tree decomposition stages) and natural phenomena (e.g. extraordinary number of species of fungi and animal world). The culture related section of the exhibit is devoted to a presentation of the types of historical use of the Forest over the span of several centuries (haymaking, bee keeping, processing wood into turpentine and charcoal, narrow gauge forest trains).
    Audio-guided tours are available in English, German, Russian and French languages.
