  • A museum that still go see, it's not fancy but it is interesting to see.

  • Modern and well appointed her Museum, that is suitable for everyone. Unfortunately, the descriptions of the exhibits all in French and not in English were written. Also has been touted in previous reviews, that this museum is interactive, I can not agree unfortunately. There is a small play area for the children and otherwise nothing. The Botanical Garden was also closed to our visit because the terrace was renovated and still we had to pay the full admission price.

  • Very rich permanent exhibition on two levels. If you are interested a little you will quickly spend a few hours, our frustration was to come home too late (the Museum closed at 6 pm). After a first part on nature and geology, you have a big exhibition on plants and animals, then the first arts. There are also a large garden with medicinal herbs (among others) as well as many greenhouses.
