Musée de la nature du Valais / Naturmuseum Wallis

Man and nature in the Valais
With an original presentation that totally immerses the visitor, the Valais Nature Museum presents the evolution of the relationship between humans and their environment, from the Mesolithic age until today. The natural environments of the Valais, with their typical fauna and fl ora, create the backgrounds for the rooms. Throughout the tour, they are presented either as supports for the geological
and biological diversity of the landscape and as the basis for human activity. As the tour progresses, the barrier between the visitors and the objects on display
symbolizes the increasing separation between human beings and their environment. In this way, visitors will be able to refl ect on their own relationship
to nature and imagine what the future developments might be.

Cigales : chanteuses mystérieuses

-
Si vous montez la rue des Châteaux par une chaude journée d’été, vous ne pourrez échapper à une stridulation presque assourdissante. Ce chant rythmé qui donne à la ville de Sion un air méditerranéen est celui de la cigale de l’orne.

Entrez dans le monde mystérieux de ces insectes à travers une exposition alliant sonorités et collections scientifiques.
