Citadelle – Naturalium

Permanent space dedicated to biodiversity: the Naturalium.
Throughout the course, you will discover new pieces from heritage collections in zoology, botany or even in paleontology. Key pieces will be exhibited such as Boris the Siberian Tiger, a coelacanth (fossil fish) or a naturalized lynx produced especially for the exhibition. Fun, mechanical and digital manipulations, multimedia projections and films will enhance your journey. The six rooms will offer an alternation of immersive atmospheres (reconstitution of a Franche-Comté meadow, a lookout hut or a living room-kitchen restoring the daily environment) or instructive thus allowing to grasp the challenges of the biodiversity and possible actions on an individual and collective scale.
