Discover the secrets of living things

Set off on an expedition in Le Muséum and go back to the origins of living things!

In the heart of Toulouse, within the garden quarter, Le Muséum unveils the secrets of the living world and the relationships that link Mankind and Nature.
How old is the Earth? What are the effects of a seismic shock? What does a giant squid look like?

From floor to ceiling Le Muséum will provide the answers to these questions…and many more besides!
Upon entry you will be greeted by Punch the elephant and Twiga the giraffe.

If you lift your gaze you can also see the skeleton of a Quetzalcoatlus with its great wings spread.
