  • Another free attraction. Your basic rocks, bones and fossils museum of the Provence area, but presented in a very organized fashion through time - with English explanations. Great T-Rex skull !  more »
  • It is one of the 5 free museums visible year-round within the walls of Avignon, in a beautiful historical palace, the theme of natural history and geology and is dedicated to the famous naturalist French Esprit Requien. Interesting and full of finds, it is a pleasant stop for families and young people.

  • For non French speakers, there wasn’t so much to learn. There are many other nice things to see in Avignon.
  • Fun museum for family. Quite an old fashioned display, with a somewhat overwhelming volume of stuffed extinct fauna, but some nice touches included in the information, and even some local traditional poetry thrown in.
