Spent well over an hour looking at all the great collections. Extremely well presented with informative labels and description. Loved seeing a TRex skull and the insect collection was awesome.

Free and delightful little museum. Children enjoyed the range of animals and fossils from the local area. About the only thing open in Avignon on a winter Tuesday.

It's in a quiet backwater, next to the Calvet Museum which is much better. There are a few exhibits, the best of which was about the return of wolves to France. All the captions are in French. I liked the information about rabies! OK to...More
