Natural History Museum Museum
The French national museum, Muséum Henri Lecoq, is exceptionally rich in variety and amount of items in its collections. 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. The reception area has a permanent exhibit on the history of science with backgrounds on great scientists, the first mechanical calculators (the Pascalinas), and the portraits of Pascal and his sisters.

  • Great Museum... Ideal for children. Conferences for adults every 15 days... Wonderful temporary exhibitions. A library. It is very rare to see a "Pascaline" of origin, this calculation machine designed by Pascal himself which we explain the functioning and the awesome system to introduce the restraint. To write to the Mayor of Clermont that he plans to expand it. To expose collections are already there. Congratulations to the Director and all the staff.
