A standout feature of Teatralna Street is the Natural History Museum, which provides an excellent example of early neoclassicism in Lviv’s residential architectural ensemble.  Built at the close of the 18th century by an unknown architect, though the structure is most likely the work of Pierre Denis Gibaut.  The building is associated with the Dzieduszycki clan, celebrated for its civic activism and scholarly pursuits.  The museum’s founder – Count Włodzimierz Dzieduszycki – was a noted zoologist, ethnographer, archeologist, and corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences in Cracow (ca. 1881).  He applied the bulk of his income from his properties to the acquisition of articles for exhibition and the maintenance of the museum.  Lviv’s State Natural History Museum is among Europe’s oldest and boasts one of the finest natural history collections on the continent.  The palace is a registered national landmark – the decision taken by the 442nd session of the Ukrainian Soviet Republic Council of Ministers on 6 September 1979, Decree No. 1263.
