  • When you walk on Autun, you can see two terrils, of a height of 100 meters, in fact they are "Telots" the telots, it is all the waste following the exploitation of bituminous shale. It is an old mine that was used to extract oil through a process of heating the argite. Interesting because the museum traces the history of this industrial revolution, but not profitable. You can see minerals like the baryte that is used to date in Fireworks. The autunite which will be the starting point of an entire energy sector based on the potentialities of the atom. Following the extractions, the Museum has a huge collection of more than 800 000 specimens in geology, petrography and mineralogy. It also has collections of paleontology, following the extraction of bituminous shale, and the opening of quarries and mines in the region, i.e. fossils following donations, the Museum has collections of Ornithology, birds the eggs and nests but also collections of Entomology, insects we can also see a herbarium, collections on prehistoric times and of course scientific animations. Contrary to what I thought, these are not showcases of stone animals etc. but really a pleasant course, very airy, well documented throughout the visit. I offer pictures of this Museum and I recommend it without worries. My favorite is for the history of Autun on the roads of energy. I really enjoyed and learned a lot about this theme.

  • On Internet brand open while it's closed, not cool for those who come from afar.... Medium means the communication of the friends.

  • Small Museum of natural history of the city of AUTUN. This site is nice to spend an hour with family in front of the local species.
