With 7,000 animals on exhibit, The Great Gallery of Evolution is a window into nature’s diversity. But behind this magnificent « showroom » hides a world unknown, a world containing one of the largest collections of specimen on earth… numbering nearly 80 million.

Even lesser known is the world-wide scientific research that goes into making the NMNH an exceptional site dedicated to nature preservation. This documentary goes behind the scenes of the NMNH and also shows the researches who travel the globe in order to bring us the fascinating, freaky and ever changing face of natural science.


Debate with :

  • Jacques Cuisin, Head of preparation / restoration platform at the National Museum of Natural History
  • Aude Lalis, Responsible for Turtles and Crocodiles at the MNHN collections
