The Nature Museum of the Institute of Systematics and Evolution of Animals of the Polish Academy of Sciences was born from the Commission on Physiographics of the Krakow Scientific Association, which was founded in 1865. The earliest collections were assembled in the building on ul. św. Anny, and in 1870 they were transferred to the building of the Skills Academy at ul. Sławkowska 17. In 1992 the Institute of Systematics and Evolution of Animals of the Polish Academy of Sciences bought the former "Roman Baths" at ul. Sebastiana 9, with the sole intention of creating the new home of the Nature Museum.

Since 1993 the museum's activities have been supported financially and organizationally by the Polish Foundation for the Protection of Nature "Pro Natura" from Krakow. The museum collections contain a unique, 30-thousand-year-old woolly rhinoceros discovered in the Starunia in the eastern Carpathians (currently the Ukraine). The museum also makes available its large collection of vertebrates, invertebrates, and mineralogical, paleontological, and archaeological collections. In total the museum collection count over two million specimens.
