Very adapted and oriented for children but maybe too much. It's a lot interactive. The museum is rather modern with screen and things you can touch. It's clean, weel organised. The staff was nice. The outside part is just games for children, not very useful....More

I'm going to start this review off by saying the visit got worse as It went along. The strange psychedelic part came at the end. First of all, entry is £15 each (or near enough) which to be frank is a rip off. The staff...More

Difficult to give this place an overall rating as it kind of depends who you are and what you are looking for. My 12 year old son (who is interested in animals) really loved it, even though he can't speak or read much French; most...More

Very interactive museum on bugs. Indoor & outdoor (on cold & windy days take something with you). 3D-cinema with 2 movies - only French so our children did not understand anything. Also animation with insects (again in French only).
