Description

The Museum of Natural History is a must-visit museum when in the city of Lille, as it is the only museum of its kind in the region of Nord-Pas de Calais. In existence since 1822, the museum is home to permanent exhibits and temporary exhibits. The permanent collections include a zoological collection, a geological collection and an Insectarium, while the temporary exhibits are available twice a year; giving visitors the opportunity to see a collection that is not in the permanent section of the museum.  The zoological section of the museum gives visitors the access to understand the animal world better with exhibits of various animals, birds and insects, in the form of skeletons and some stored in alcohol. The geological area presents the geological history of northern France through some fascinating exhibits, while the Insectarium housed in the zoological space is home to some very interesting species of insects. With so much on offer, the museum is surely worthy a visit when in Lille.
