Then we chose key periods in Earth's history, with all the species that appeared over time… such as these large marine reptiles that have no parallel in nature today.

Obviously, dinosaurs are there too, just like these giant insects or funny little mammals… There's no risk of getting lost: just follow Charlie and Darwin, two virtual guides who tell us about the species we see.

We bring natural history to as many people as possible, and we will look for new audiences.“, Add Stephanie Targieresponsible for innovation at the Parisian museum.
