  • Very interesting. It is sometimes a pity to see specimens in poorer condition and without the age of the animals to which the dissections took place. To see the room of the skinned Open between 2pand and 6pm Open for museum night (Today then....) Free for under-26s! Book and postcard sales Very welcome

  • Nestled in the heart of the veterinary school, this little-known museum deserves to move. In a large and surprising park where students walk that a dog, that a cat, that a nac, a building wing hosts the museum. You will be able to observe all kinds of diseases that affect animals, from the most common to the rarest. Members of sick animals are presented dried or in formaldehyde. The explanations are detailed and interesting. This museum deals with medical research on animals but also interests us, at the time of the ethology boom, on our relationship to animals and on scientific research at all. The back cabinet, a kind of cabinet of curiosities, houses Fragonard's "skinned". Sensitive souls, abstain. Fragonard was a pioneer of science who wanted to dissect, understand and show the functioning of the human body but also animal. In the middle of the 18th century, he braved the prohibitions and taboos to lay bare the networks of arteries and veins that run through living things. The result is breathtaking even 250 years later! Don't miss... We only regret that the museum has lost its status as a national museum, the state having recently disengaged itself to save money and place public funds to other much less useful skies...
