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.

Bringing together scientific and artistic perspectives, this exhibition offers a chance to (re)discover these extraordinary creatures.
Entrance is free with the Lyon City Card.
