We went there for an hour and a half, schedule 2 hours to see it all. Lovely temporary exhibition of Easter Island that explains a lot of misteries as actual simple facts.

We went to see the fossils bit of the museum first and were somewhat spoiled as the rest of the museum just doesn’t compare really. It’s a bit of a mish mash of loads of taxidermy (and I mean hundreds) then strange other bits from different countries that don’t quite hang together. Our boys who are bright and easily interested didn’t find much to grab them and neither did I. The stuff from other countries - particularly Africa - just made me want to give it all back to where it belonged. Yes a lift as well as stairs, shop a bit thin and decent loos. But wouldn’t recommend really. They need to rethink this … it’s just not working.

The museum has been renovated beautifully with its 19th century character maintained. The precious rocks are gorgeous, the flora and fauna collections fabulous, but best of all for us was the ethnographic collection containing an extremely rare and important Easter Island figure as well as an African fang figure of superb quality, among others.

This museum has the old and unfortunate habit of linking natural history and ethnography. I am less interested in natural history so we started at the top with the ethnography collection. (By the way there is a lift which is an unusual asset in a French provincial museum in a historic building.) The collections were brilliant and covered not only Africa and the Pacific Ocean but parts of South America as well. They are beautifully displayed by theme and do not overwhelm you with information. You do not have to be a specialist to enjoy the displays. The natural history collections are pretty comprehensive with many stuffed animal on open display.

Very interesting, somewhat macabre museum, featuring many things .. stuffed animals, birds, oriental and African treasures. Prehistoric monsters and all things exciting for little people. Highly recommended and very educational.
