BEHIND THE SCENES – Crinolines and Mosasaurs, a dreamy walk through the belly of the Museum – Escaped from a princely collection, lurking above the zoo, nestled in a former cloister – the Museum of Natural Sciences, decorated with elegant Art Nouveau curves and then a modern shell. Its flanks are home to a whole range of fauna to watch or dream about, such as the “Lizards of the Meuse”, discovered in Belgium almost 250 years ago. Intrepid naturalists, smuggled tigers or Brussels elephants, the corridors rustle with extraordinary stories.
Have you already seen the largest Dinosaur Gallery in Europe? Come to the Museum of Natural sciences where you will be awed by our collection of dinosaurs, but where you can also learn about the human body and how we evolved, go back in time in the Gallery of Evolution, find out about urban species in BiodiverCITY. And to top it all off, there is a brand-new permanent exhibition, the Gallery of Living Planet where you will be amazed by the abundance and variety of all species.
