The Museum of Natural History of Bordeaux


After 10 years of closure due to renovation, the Bordeaux Museum of Natural History finally reopened its doors on March 31, 2019.

An opportunity for me to share with you my passion for animals and nature.

Since I was a child, I have been passionate about the world around me and, fascinated by many species, I have always dreamed of one day being able to go on a safari.

Nevertheless, I have been lucky enough thanks to some of my travels to be able to make exceptional encounters with dolphins, monkeys and elephants, for example. But since my return to France I have not been able to satisfy my thirst for knowledge and encounters of all kinds. That is why I went to the Museum of Natural History in Bordeaux as soon as it reopened.


For the record, the Bordeaux Natural Museum, which is now one of the most popular in Europe, was created after the French Revolution and from only a few private collections. The museum now has a collection of more than 4,000 species that will be presented to the public over time through numerous exhibitions with very specific themes.

And, for its reopening, the director and curator of the Nathalie Mémoire Museum has decided to put the little things into the big picture. The museum's itinerary has been completely redesigned. This makes it possible to attract a wider target audience around many animations.

For example, it is now possible to visit a new room specially designed for children under six years of age. The idea of this room is to be able to make the link between children and baby animals. A fun way to introduce the youngest among us to the evolution of nature.

The museum is a real invitation to travel, so I invite you to enjoy this unique place in Bordeaux!
