If you're into fossils this is a nice something to do for a half hour or so. There's a t-rex skull and some mammoth ivory and a couple of other large pieces and some other well annotated displays. Small but nicely organised collection from the région with free entry.

Free and delightful little museum. Children enjoyed the range of animals and fossils from the local area. About the only thing open in Avignon on a winter Tuesday.

We stumbled upon this hidden gem of a natural history museum. If you love geology, earth history, indigenous animals, and art you will enjoy coming here.

a somewhat quirky collection but well arranged to convey local ecology and accessible to children. Worth an hour or so.

Stumbled upon it when leaving the Museum Calvert. It was free so I stuck my head in for a few minutes. Seemed to focus on French attempts to reintroduce wolves into the countryside. I'd keep it in my hip pocket as a place to go if the weather turns snotty. It won't be overrun with tourists.

This is a rather old fashioned museum with some stuffed and mounted animals on display. They are local animals from Vaucluse. It was interesting to see and compare the different animals. though some people may find it not PC. There are stuffed birds too. There is a separate and very interesting exhibition about bees and how to attract them in... More

It's in a quiet backwater, next to the Calvet Museum which is much better. There are a few exhibits, the best of which was about the return of wolves to France. All the captions are in French. I liked the information about rabies! OK to get out of the sun for half an hour. Free.
