The museum is located in the Visitor Center and it is the naturalistic reception point for school groups and visitors to the Orecchiella Nature Reserves. It reproduces all the aspects of the natural environment of the Apennine Tuscan-Emilian National Park in an interactive way: the beech woods, the high-altitude grasslands, the rocky walls and the pastures. One section is entirely dedicated to birds of prey.

The museum includes wildlife areas that host mouflon sheep, bears and roe deer and the garden of mountain flowers.
