Natural History Museum of Toulouse

Natural History Museum

In 2,600m2 of exhibition space at the Muséum de Toulouse, Zoology, Botany, Ethnography, Geology, Palaeontology and History show the relationship between human beings, Nature and the Environment.
Located in the Bourderouge district, the Muséum de Toulouse also includes a garden area and lake in the centre of the city. The whole complex is housed in an environment-friendly building. In the Gers, the paleontological deposit at Montréal-du-Gers, owned by the City of Toulouse, will allow the public visiting the Origin Road to visit and dig for fossils.

Coordination is provided by professional mediators and interpretative media

Instructors at the Toulouse Natural History Museum mediate with the 200,000 visitors a year on a daily basis. Used to working with different types of audience, they provide the right experience for each visitor… and even if they are not on-site our facilities will help you understand the importance of the deposit.

A world-class site

This is a world-class geosite because of the discoveries made here. It’s one of Europe’s major sites and the most important paleontological site discovered in France for a century.
