Overview

Housed in an 18th century building, The Natural History Museum of Le Havre has entertaining interactive temporary exhibitions which explore the wealth of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms. Each new exhibition covers the whole museum so that it is completely replenished with each change of exhibition. The aim of the museum is to encourage curiosity through games, and to completely engage you through the senses so that you discover the fascinating fields of science in a different way and better share their challenges. An ideal family activity !
