Musée d'Histoire Naturelle

The museum, which has been modernised and regularly enriched, has become a must-see site. Mammals, regional and exotic birds, skeletons, insects and arachnids fascinate the visitor. The huge sperm whale skeleton floats in the air, while a life-size dinosaur contemplates the geological part, where the history of our region since 400 million years is told. Bus line 14 or 18 - stop: "Lebas". Metro: "République Beaux-Arts" or "Mairie de Lille" stop. Open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 9.30am to 5pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 6pm. Closed on Tuesdays and certain public holidays (opening hours subject to change depending on the exhibition).
