When Henri Lecoq died, he left his collection relating to mineralogy, petrology, and botany to the town, which now resides in the museum bearing his name.

  • A journey through time rich in discoveries and surprises. Not to be missed. The little extra: admission is free for students

  • Museum of natural history Henri Lecoq address: 15 St Bardoux, 63000 Clermont-Ferrand phone: 04 73 42 32 00 price: €6 adults many discounted rates. Handicapped accessibility is very difficult. Visit on Friday 25/08/2017 at 1.30 pm a dynamic Museum that I would call Museum of natural history. Varied collections and items to see. This museum is not the most modern, only, it has the merit to evolve at their own pace and progress. The structure is well maintained, the staff attentive and helpful. For collectors: currencies of Paris or unavailable tourist chips, regrettable. I would recommend this property.
