    Micropolis, La Cité des insectes

    The power of bugs.

    In the heart of Aveyron, Micropolis Insect World delves into the fascinating and mysterious world of creepy crawlies.
    The 2,400-sq. m. centre opened in June 2000 following the success of the 1996 documentary Microcosmos.

    Micropolis has fifteen themed exhibition areas, a gift shop and large restaurant. It offers an insight into the life of insects and their importance in the ecosystem. Many species are on display in their natural habitats, giving you a chance to see them at work.

    This year, there will also be 3D screenings of the films Carnivorous Plants and Garden Insects.
