The use of Natural History collections has always been a fundamental teaching resource in science education at university level. The material reality of these objects let us show the concepts explained in class. Both students and teachers appreciate their usefulness. Considered globally these collections are a heritage of great educational, scientific and cultural value which allows teaching within the alleged mainstreaming of knowledge. Apart from belonging to traditional subjects such as Zoology, Botany or Mineralogy, these collections serve as practical teaching resources in other modern areas of knowledge, for example museum studies, scientific culture, communication and heritage management.
