Baby Animals

Designed specifically with children in mind, Baby Animals enables them
to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of animals and nature. Baby
Animals is a co-production between the Royal Belgian Institute of
Natural Sciences and the Museum of Toulouse.

Bébés Animaux au Muséum

"Baby Animals" is divided into 6 themed zones, each including audio-visual presentations, experiments,games, interactive activities, stuffed animals and animal models and sculptures.
Throughout the trail, thirty or so mini cartoon strips (without words) tell the stories of baby animals through situations and anecdotes that fit with the zone's theme. You will find an explanation of each of these little scenarios appended to this document.

The 6 exhibition zones are:
• Birth
• Threats and protection
• Learning
• Vital functions
• Development
• Independence

The human baby is touched upon systematically in each zone, but is never central to the ideas expressed.We believe that the young visitor will spontaneously use their own experiences and knowledge of their own past to compare the large number of situations that nature presents and which are tackled in the exhibition.

Included in the exhibition:
- 60 species and over one hundred specimens on show
- 9 multimedia activities
- 13 interactive experiments
- 30 comic strips so the youngest children can visit independently

Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Toulouse

The Natural History Museum of Toulouse

150 years after its founding, the Museum again opened its doors in 2008 after remaining closed for 10 years while it was undergoing a complete redesign. Now reorganised to reflect the relationship between man, nature and environment, its aim is to be a knowledge sharing institution that imparts its own particular perspective while instilling a sense of wonder and delight in visitors.

The exhibition circuit is designed to arouse curiosity and awareness of the position we occupy on this planet and how we can stay in harmony with it.
