  • a small museum that traces the history of the world, since the big bang. Beautiful part geology, lots of animals. Very classical museology, with many explanations. little renovated and quite authentic.

  • We visited the museum as a family during the Halloween holidays, and we remember it very well it is a museum rich in history and information and very playful for children ... to see if you go through Avignon!

  • 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.
