The Museum of Comparative Zoology (MCZ) at NSS Hindu College is a center for education, focused on the animal life. The MCZ was founded in 1957 along with the formation of Department of zoology. Our vision is to illuminate the structures of living things, their natural classification and relationship with their surroundings. The present-day MCZ collections are comprised of approximately 2000 extant and fossil specimens, which continue to be a focus of teaching for zoology department and outside, students and public in large . MCZ has a mission to create public understanding and appreciation of the natural world.
