The Natural Museum in Jelenia Gora has a collection of more than 6,600 specimens of birds' eggs, birds, mammals, and their skins, horns, butterflies, shells, cross-sections of trees, plaster models of fungi, minerals and mines, forming a permanent exhibition. The museum organizes interesting exhibitions on nature.

Due to the collaboration with the State Museum of Natural History in Görlitz every two years we can admire the subsequent editions of the "Life under water" exhibition, which presents the works awarded in the largest European underwater photo competition Louis Boutan's Camera.

The Natural History Museum is currently preparing new permanent exhibitions (mostly about nature) which will be made ​​available progressively in 2014. Those will include the exhibition "Horns and antlers", where we will see dozens of horns and antlers of ungulates from around the world (buffalo, mouflon, antelope, deer, elk and roe deer).

Onother planned exhibition will be "That was the treasury of Silesia" - the only exhibition of its kind, having no counterparts in Poland and very important for the region, and especially for Cieplice. There we will see a fragment of the ancient exposures, which were presented  here until 1945 in the Schaffgotsch's Library (which was that very building). Original equipment (cabinets, wardrobes, bookcases) and exhibits preserved in the Museum of Natural Resources in Jelenia Gora will be used for that purpose.
