Within the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution, the Galerie des Enfants, designed for families, opened in June 2010. Biodiversity and environmental problems are addressed in a practical and fun way: you can observe, touch, ask questions and be amazed by the diversity of plants and animals from different environments: the city, the river and tropical forests.
The Galerie des Enfants is a permanent exhibition for children aged 6 to 12, accompanied by at least one adult.
