Covering 6,000 m², the permanente exhibition displays thousands of specimens that recount the amazing story of life's evolution. The remarkable metal architecture of the 19th century monument and uniquely staged collections offer a magnificent, sensory-rich, one-of-a-kind setting for your events. Throughout the year, temporary exhibitions can further enrich your events.
