Description

Nature and science at the Palais Longchamp.

Created in 1819 under the Marquis de Montgrand, Mayor of Marseille, and the Count de Villeneuve, prefect of the Bouches du Rhone, the Natural History Museum of Marseille brought together a collection of 18th century curiosities. It moved in 1869 to the right wing of the Palais Longchamp, built as an ode to water, and to the Arts and Sciences.

The Natural History Museum of Marseille today comprises a world zoology room, a room dedicated to the evolution and adaptation of the living, a prehistoric room, and a Provence room with items dating from the 19th century.

Children will marvel at the sight of these animals from around the world, some of which are little known or extinct, which they can get right up close to and admire.
