Natural History Museum of Gruffy

Domaine(s) : Botanics

Region : Rhône-Alpes


The aim of the museum is clearly said:
'Earth does not belong to humanity but humanity belongs to Earth'

Therefore, the visit goes from Discovering the nature to environmental education.


Visiting the museum takes one to two hours.
Outings are also organized once a month: to see the fauna and flora in absolute freedom is something that is being rarer.

Museum is open:
- From March the 15th to November the 15th from 14h to 18h every day (except on Monday and on Saturday)
- In July and August every day from 14h to 18h30
- All the year to host groups (children or adults, and under reservation). Disclaimer : The management team of the destination has the possibility to change the opening days and hours without prior communication.


The museum shows many animals and explains how they live in the nature or with the man.

Animals include:
- Domestic animals that live on farms in our region
- Wild animals such as woodchuck and deer
- Butterflies,
- The world of beekeeping,
- Minerals.

The museum organizes holidays (Feast of the autumn, for example) that presents the life and products of yesteryear peasants.
