A huge and fascinating olfactory exhibition entirely dedicated to the sense of smell. Between science and culture, interactive and playful, intergenerational and for all ages, it comprises twenty themed modules that spark curiosity and reflection, fun and emotion.
An odour is intimately related to the person perceiving it, their emotions and memories. This exhibition is an invitation to fully immerse yourself in the fascinating realm of odours. The main focus is on the highly evocative power of the sense of smell as well as its utterly personal and cultural aspects. Explore the realm of odours, scents, aromas, and fragrances: spices, herbs, flowers, fruits, vegetables, perfumery, oenology…
This exhibition includes an area specially designed for 3 to 6-year-olds: Take a whiff
