Museum of Zoologie-Aquarium Tropical - Leisure centre in Nancy

Housed in an Art Deco building, the Museum-Aquarium de Nancy consists of a gallery of zoology aquarium galleries and exhibitions. All text is trilingual (French, German and English).

Instead of scientific and technical culture and history of science, the Museum-Aquarium de Nancy proposes a staged its clear and attractive collections in the gallery of zoology.

Zoological collections come from all continents and all the oceans and were collected gradually since the late 18th century. A selection of 600 animals is presented to illustrate the animal kingdom as a whole but the rest of the collections, nearly 140,000 specimens, is kept in reserve and available to researchers.

These specimens are regularly presented in the exhibitions. Collections include representatives of extinct or endangered but also specimens and objects for animations, bringing together collections visitors.

As for tropical aquariums, they allow visitors to admire the animals living in their natural environment restored.

57 aquariums from 200 to 15 000 liters plunge visitors into the tropical waters of the Red Sea, the Amazon River or Lake Victoria. Grouper, octopus, anemones, sea urchins, shrimp and other aquatic animals are among the 300 species presented.

Each year, the Museum-Aquarium designed a major exhibition about his collections. Different disciplines mingle zoology, art, humanities, genetics, ecology, etc..

Throughout the year conferences and events are planned in collaboration with many partners in the establishment. Animations and tours are regularly offered to adults and children alike.
