Micropolis, Cité des Insectes

This interactive museum is dedicated to insects, providing a whole host of information on their behaviour and how they contribute to our lives and environment. A 3D film, interactive displays and a range of activities unveil their secrets to visitors, while stick insects, scorpions and tarantulas can be admired in the museum's vivariums. Outside, huge giant metal sculptures of insects give visitors the impression that normal human and insect proportions have been switched.
