Presentation
Located in the District of Busca-Montplaisir, the Jardin des Plantes, the natural history Museum of Toulouse has an area of 6,000 m² and houses a collection of more than two million and a half pieces. It is the second largest Museum of France, after the national Museum of natural history (Paris).

It is created in 1796 by the naturalist Philippe-Isidore Picot de Lapeyrouse, in the former premises of the monastery of the Discalced Carmelites, giving the Museum a prestigious setting. Reserved until that time only naturalists, it opens to the public in 1865 by decision of the municipal Council with a new mission: the reception of the public. Édouard Filhol will be the first Director of this new institution. At the same time, the Botanical Garden of the University located in the District of Saint-Sernin is transferred to this former monastery.

The permanent exhibition includes five related themes:
-Feel the power of the Earth.
-Dismiss the notions of hierarchy
-Familiarize yourself with the large scale of the time.
-Admit the evidence
-Invent the future
