It took long scientific preparation, research and data collection for Greek and foreign scientists, artists and special museologists to present part of their activity to the public, thus fulfilling the mission of the museum as a scientific and educational centre. The first exhibition halls of the museum, those of plants biology, were designed for GNHM by the British Museum of Natural History. However, the Museum soon proceeded to its own architectural and museological design of its zoology and geology areas, with its artistic manager Petros Zabelis being in charge of the operations. The museological conception, the aesthetics of the spaces, the multitude and quality of exhibits were back then as they are now perfect in terms of communication.
