Museu Darder de BanyolesAcronym: MDEIE-Collections
Darder Museum of Banyoles was inaugurated on 22 October 1916. Originally, the specimens of the Museum came from the donation of the natural history collections of Francesc Darder Llimona to the town of Banyoles. The collection includes original pieces of dissected animals from around the world, pieces of anthropology, skulls, fetus, human skins, and educational materials related to the natural sciences.
