A component of United Bulgarian Bank’s effort to support the preservation of historical heritage and scientific developments in this field stands its active partnership with the National Museum of Natural History.

Founded in 1889 by Royal Prince Ferdinand as Royal Prince’s Natural History Museum, today the National Museum of Natural History preserves impressive collections of mammals, birds, insects, minerals. And there is more to that... Throughout the year the Museum hosts various initiatives, aimed at exploring the nature, making discoveries on Bulgarian territory, promoting natural wildlife-human parallels. United Bulgarian Bank upholds the efforts of the National Museum of Natural History for development and enrichment of its collections.

Thus in 2012, the Bank assisted in transforming the well-known NMNH’s hall of minerals into a hall of precious stones, displaying some of the most spectacular specimens, found on Bulgarian land. In 2013 the National Museum of Natural History added to its mammal collection a habitat diorama of a Siberian tiger, while in 2014 UBB backed two extremely interesting expeditions of the Museum's scientists, whose findings are being awaited by the entire scientific community - paleontological excavations in search for the latest pre-human hominids in Europe, as well as excavations and research in Mishin Kamak cave.

In 2015 the Museum scientists, supported by UBB, accomplished a zoological expedition in search of the extremely rare Red Wolf. Following the expedition the Bank also assisted the designing and production of a 360-degree interactive tour of the Museum halls, uploaded in the NMNH website.
