Nikolaev Zoo was founded by the mayor of Nikolai Pavlovich Lyonovich. As he himself wrote in the report submitted to the Executive Committee of the Nikolaev Region in 1923, the zoo, then called the Aquarium, was created on April 26, 1901.
At the present time as much as he lived earlier in the interest of our people so it is clear. Unfortunately, our Zoo Museum is on a voluntary basis. There is no guard in the crew. And the room itself is not completely ready for viewing. In the future, we have plans to set up a museum exhibition in a large spacious hall equipped with the latest equipment and professional staff. The museum in the zoo allows us to diversify the scientific and educational work with visitors. Practically every zoo has the opportunity to create its own museum, preserve its history and extend the life of the animals with a new quality.
