Museum Information

Muséum de Toulouse

Toulouse | 31

The public takes great pleasure in wandering through this magnificent building which has an innovative and contemporary design that holds many surprises. Visitors are led through a journey of discovery which reveals the secrets of the planet and poses questions about life on earth, its principal characteristics, its evolution and its future. The Museum’s collections comprise nearly 2.5 million objects of which 8000 are presented in a largely interactive manner designed to whet the appetites of both the connaisseur and the youngest visitors. Amongst the experiences on offer, visitors can feel the effects of an earthquake, come face to face with a wall of skeletons, peer into a microscope in the lab and participate in activities and games that stimulate the inquiring scientific mind.
