Experiment - Discover - Play

Are you crazy about fossils, dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures? Then come along to our paleoLAB! There are 3 sessions per day at 13:30,14:30 and 15:30.

In this unique discovery space in the Dinosaur Gallery you will take on the role of a palaeontologist, then that of a geologist and anthropologist. You’ll get a chance to touch, try, explore and puzzle over real fossils. You can take part in digs, discover fossils or rebuild a skeleton. You can also put together a life-size stegosaurus, make a fossil print or follow  dinosaur footprints. There's much more: you can examine and classify minerals, wear a prehistoric outfit or just quietly read an interesting book about dinosaurs.

A great activity for the whole family!

Available in English, French and Dutch.

Werp nog een laatste blik in onze Insectenzaal en Vivarium in het Museum voor Natuurwetenschappen voor de definitieve sluiting!

In 2018 staat de opening gepland van nieuwe permanente zalen over biodiversiteit op onze planeet. Om die tentoonstelling goed te kunnen voorbereiden en van inhoud te voorzien, sluit het Museum op 17 april 2017 definitief de deuren van de Insectenzaal en het Vivarium. Met deze Broodje Brussel-rondleiding geven we je de kans mee afscheid te vieren. We tonen je nog eens de prachtige kleuren en verrassende vormen van vlinders, kevers,  bijen … en hun geleedpotige neven zoals spinnen, duizendpoten en schaaldieren. We gaan ook nog eens langs het vivarium waar het nu nog krioelt van het meerpotige leven. Gelukkig zal er ook in de nieuwe zaal voldoende aandacht besteed worden aan insecten en consoorten en zullen vele specimens daar een tweede leven krijgen.
