  • Nice little Museum in the city center, just opposite a large park. On 3 levels, it is (re) discover different areas: animals, minerals, inventors, fossils, insects (with pretty collections of butterflies). There are spaces for children, to make small experiences... I saw no access for people with reduced mobility, or strollers. I have waited a little more interactivity anyway...

  • Very large and well preserved collections of Mr. Lecoq, a XIXth century pharmacian, businessman and scientist of the region 
  • In this day of heritage, free tour of the Museum and these reserves. I was able to discover the backstage of the Museum, which the public never sees. Very friendly staff and who love their professions point let us discover, by theme, for 45 minutes each. Very very beautiful discoveries and good experience.
