Neighborhood: Old Town

Musée cantonal de zoologie takes up the top floor of the Rumine Palace which dominates the Place de la Riponne. It displays a large collection of extinct animals from the region and other areas. A leaflet distributed to visitors allows you to explore the exhibits with ease; in each window, an animal chosen for its zoological, behavioral or historical importance is described at length. The other species presented are highlighted more succinctly. Various small exhibitions, either permanent or temporary, are displayed. Among these, cryptozoology is a favorite, for it is the science that describes animals whose existence has no scientific proof, and therefore cannot be officially "classified".
