The Zoology Museum at Sri Guru Granth Sahib World University (SGGSW) stands as a testament to the institution's commitment to the biological sciences, particularly in the field of Zoology. The museum is an integral part of the University's Department of Zoology, serving as an educational resource, a research hub, and a point of public engagement.

The Zoology Museum is not just a static display but a dynamic educational tool. It supports the academic curriculum by providing students with hands-on learning experiences. Practical classes and workshops are held in the museum, allowing students to study specimens up close. This hands-on approach enhances their understanding of theoretical concepts taught in lectures.

The museum is open to the public, offering educational tours and outreach programs. These initiatives aim to raise awareness about zoology and inspire interest in the natural sciences among the broader community.

A key focus of the Zoology Museum is the conservation and preservation of its collections. Specimens are meticulously cared for to ensure their longevity.
