Who are these tiny invaders?

From the 26th of June to the 31st of October 2019, the Musée des Confluences will be presenting a new exhibition on the thousands of insects and bacteria that share our daily lives, in our homes or on our bodies...

Last updated date : 01/07/2019
From 26/06/2019 to 03/05/2020 between 11 am and 7 pm except on January 1st May 1st and December 25th. Closed on Monday.
Musée des Confluences 86 quai Perrache - 69002 Lyon 2ème

Lice, fleas, dust mites and flies share our lives and thrive, hidden from view. Not an appealing thought, it has to be said... Worse still, they have always been with us, surviving all attempts to eradicate them! However, they also contribute to the balance of our ecosystem. Does that make you feel any better? 

For the first time, the Musée des Confluences is producing an exhibition for a young audience, aged 8 to 12, inviting them into a parallel world, where the infinitely small are shown on a scale that will amaze, making visitors feel like a small creature. A little bit like Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, this fun exhibition trail invites curious minds to step into the shoes of a scientist and explore the mysteries of this tiny world through a microscope.

This exhibition is included in the Lyon City Card.

Laetitia

Laetitia is a real ray of sunshine. Needless to say, there's no chance of getting bored when working by her side! Whether she's cheerful or glum, she's wont to burst into song, with tunes that tend to stick in your mind all day. Well where's the fun in a non-catchy song?
