Microbiota

Based on the book "Gut, the inside story of our body's most under-rated
organ".

Underestimated for a very long time, our intestine hosts thousands of
microbes. This microbiota plays a role in digestion, the immune system and
behavior.

Microbiota

The eponymous exhibition, adapted from the successful book, written by Giulia Enders and illustrated by her sister Jill Enders, reveals recent discoveries on the intestinal microbiota and the importance of it being balanced.

The intestine and its fascinating microcosms! We are an ecosystem, living in symbiosis with our microbes. Discovering and understanding this allows us to take care of our bodies and our health.

THE DIGESTION GUIDED TOUR

Funny, clear, precise and illustrated explanations by the Enders sisters inspire this explorative journey of the digestive tract. Interactive elements reveal the role and functioning of each organ.

THE INTESTINE IS REVEALED

In the depth of our guts, several billion inhabitants play an essential role. These bacteria make up the intestinal microbiota. Visitors explore this unknown universe, its composition, functions and impact on health.

THE INTESTINAL LANDSCAPE

Visitors discover how to take care of their microbiota, cultivate this ecosystem and look after their intestinal landscape. Good advice is backed up by scientific and humorous explanations.

Target audience: all types of public, families and school children ages 9 and up
