From the ladybird to the scarab, the Colorado beetle to the firefly, beetles amaze and impress through their size and surprising abilities. Found everywhere except in the Poles and oceans, these insects form part of our everyday lives and are the subject of many myths and beliefs around the world. This exhibition, at the frontier between the sensory and the scientific, is an opportunity to discover the Musée des Confluences’ incredible collection of insects.
