Ecrins National Park Centre

The Maison du Parc National des Écrins has had quite a revamp, which is good news for children: fun exhibitions on nature and architecture, as well as interactive activities mean much can be learned about the Massif des Écrins mountains, which straddle three départements and two regions... A discovery trail introduces you to the natural environment.
