The Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Dijon, also known as the Natural History Museum of Dijon, is a natural history museum in Dijon, France. It is situated in the Parc de l'Arquebuse.

Along with the Hubert Curien Planetarium and Arquebuse Botanical Garden, it is one of the three components that make up the Jardin des Sciences. The Arquebuse park is home to Dijon's natural history museum and is close to both the Botanical Garden and the Hubert Curien Planetarium.


Learn about the muse and the museum:

The establishment, which was founded in 1836 by the naturalist Leonard Nodot and is housed in a former barracks with arcades, has three buildings: the Raines pavilion houses temporary exhibitions, the reserves, and the laboratory; the Arquebuse pavilion houses the permanent collection on biodiversity; and finally, the Petite and Grande Orangerie annexes are still accessible.

It is a place where learners feel valued, and knowledge is an asset:

The place allows one to think critically about biodiversity's fundamental issues through museum studies. Scientific messages are illustrated by reconstructions, maquettes, naturally occurring specimens, fossils, multimedia, and paintings.

Appreciate the diversity and wealth of life and recognize the vulnerability of the environment:

The site presents models, stuffed specimens, fossils, and casts to prompt visitors to consider biodiversity issues. The museography of the site has also been updated.

This course, designed for all audiences, relies on scientific, interactive, and fun presentations to help students better understand the diversity of living things on Earth.

Attend ongoing events and happenings for in-depth insights:

Regularly held temporary exhibitions with a theme are also organized.

At the planetarium, temporary exhibits are planned following the same philosophy to complement this ongoing presentation.
