The Natural History Museum of Clermont-Ferrand presents a fascinating collection centering around the natural heritage of the region. Named in tribute to the French botanist Henri Lecoq, this place is an opportunity to discover all kinds of animal and plant species on an exciting journey through the history of the city. Temporary exhibitions and workshops are also regularly organised.

Do & See

The city's major sights and historical beauties are connected by several walking paths that run through the two ancient town centres of Clermont and Montferrand. The whole area is home to architectural treasures, museums, castles and some of France’s richest Roman heritage. The region where the city lies is a wonderful site for outdoor activities and adventures, providing travellers with some incomparable walking-trails that twist and turn around the imposing Puy De Dôme volcano.
