  • This is a beautiful Museum interesting and very well preserved. An impressive collection of naturalized animals collected for most in the 19th century. Visit.

  • We visited the museum 2 years ago while there was a taxidermy exposition going on. Mind blowing! They managed to put together an amazing collection.The park behind the museum was nice as well.
  • it was great free money should try it out if looking for an intersting place
  • The visit of the Museum of natural history of la Rochelle is really worth a visit. The collections are varied and well worth. In addition, the entrance to the Museum is free the first Sunday of the month (excluding summer). Leaving the Museum it is absolutely necessary to stroll through the Botanical Garden, it is beautiful (there is even a playground for children).
