Night - Travelling exhibition

Night is a natural phenomenon that has always fascinated humans. It is synonymous with mystery and can enchant as well as awe both young and old. This exhibition proposes a discovery tour of the stars and a forest populated with busy nocturnal inhabitants as well as a silent space on sleep and dreams…before ending with night myths and monsters.
