Located in Lyon, at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône, in the heart of an architecture designed to be a place for encounters and questions, the museum addresses major universal questions: the origin and future of humanity, the diversity of cultures and societies, and the place of humans within the living world. By decompartmentalizing the sciences and thanks to remarkable scenographies, the museum brings out new keys to understand and unravel the complexity of our world. These perspectives awaken our curiosity and, through emotion and wonder, invite us to knowledge.
