Link to Photo Gallery
The Photo Archive of GNHM contains about 9 thousand photo documents (pictures, slides, negatives) from 1950 till today, and it still grows.
It includes, inter alia, rich photographic material from the scientific collections of the Museum (botany, marine biology, geology, entomology, etc.), rare photos and slides of forests and wetlands (mainly deriving from the scientific missions of the Museum in Greek countryside), as well as photographic material from the periodical exhibitions organized by the Museum.
A small but significant part of the Archive includes pictures of great personalities of the international and Greek intellectual, cultural and political sectors who have visited the Museum (Indira Gandi, Jackie Kennedy- Onassis, Villy Brandt etc.).
It also includes pictures from the Museum’s historical evolution.
The systematic digitization of the photographical archive started in 2005, in the context of the Information Society project “Documentation, Digitization and Promotion of the Collections of Goulandris Museum of Natural History”.
