By a rainy afternoon, you don't know what to do? Let's go to the museum! A nice visit, very ludic. Insects, reptiles, fishes welcome you in their vivariums and aquariums: you can see fresh water species from river Loire! And what about a little safari? Nah, it's a joke... Animals and birds from Sologne and Loire's banks are waiting for you, next, but also bear, buffalo, dodo... And you know what? You'll see a curiosity room, with its disparate collection: bones, skeletons, shells, dries fishes and insects... Orléans' museum is 6 500 square metres and 3 storeys.
