In the museum area, dive into the heart of the pond: the aquatic animals reveal their records and tricks. Our aquariums will show you the different species that live in the pond. On the big screen, follow the life of the pond throughout the seasons.

At weekends and during the school holidays, a nature guide will tell you all the secrets of the pond using cameras placed on the site and in the nesting boxes.

Ready to discover?

It's time to take a closer look at the pond: under the water, at the water's edge and even from the tree tops! Get ready to travel back in time through the 500-year history of the pond, which has seen many changes.

Finally, you will discover how to contribute to the protection of the environment.
