3 rooms with over 5000 butterflies and insects from the 5 continents. The 1st room contains European fauna, with a special focus on the diurnal butterflies from the Massif des Bauges Regional Nature Reserve. The 2nd room offers a rich insight into the butterflies and insects from the Upper Amazon Basin. In the 3rd room, visitors can look at butterflies from Africa and Asia as well as stunningly spectacular giant insects.
An area is dedicated to temporary exhibitions: since 2022, an exhibition on the endemic fauna of Madagascar with more than 300 butterflies and insects from that area.
To round off the tour, live insects are on display in terrariums (currently under work).
