North and south galleries
The largest in terms of surface area and animals on display, this exhibition systematically presents the main groups of vertebrate animals found on our planet.
Disparus!

The museum has a small but very valuable collection of extinct animals. A room is dedicated to them and provides an overview of the current threats to biodiversity and ways to preserve it. 
Comparative anatomy room
Intended for university teaching, this "museum of the museum" has undergone few modifications and offers an impressive spectacle of rows of jars, skeletons and two-headed monsters. An area is dedicated to cryptozoology, a branch of biology that studies animals that we are not sure exist. The best known are the yeti, the bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster.
