From October 22, 2022 to April 23, 2023, come and meet the Mini-monsters in the Geology and Mineralogy Gallery of the National Museum of Natural History, where seven species will be honoured: the louse, the fly, the tick, the mosquito, the flea, the bedbug and the mite.

Thanks to an immersive scenography, young and old alike will be able to admire these little beasts magnified 50,000 to 150,000 times. With observation protocols and scientific manipulations, these species will no longer hold any secrets for you!

The exhibition offers a four-stage tour in which you start "at the heart" of their universe before discovering their characteristics and their way of life.

Mini-monsters can also be discovered in colour and in XXL size! In addition to the exhibition, "Mini-mondes en voie d'illumination" enjoy a night-time stroll through the alleys of the Jardin des Plantes.

Discover our selection of exhibitions to discover with your family and have fun while learning!
