Thousands of ants invade the museum!

Ants are in the spotlight at the museum. After scoring the 2nd Act of the 50th anniversary and having had a huge success in 2017, the exhibition ants is extended until 2019. An opportunity to admire or re-admire these fascinating social insects in activity.

Learned ants farmers mushrooms to wink at the Anthill Atta presented at the museum in the years 1977 to 1984, a spectacle still present in the memory of the Geneva-es.

Ants still to talk about evolution, ecology and anatomy: Remarkable adaptation to many backgrounds, exceptional diversity, spectacular social behaviors...

Ants finally to reveal to the public one of the treasures of the collections of the museum, the most important collection of ants in the world constituted by Auguste Forel at the end of the 19th century.

Ants, an exciting journey between science, society and art. A gallery of artists and a space of mediation help to reinforce the originality of the exhibition.
