A thousand billion ants

Ants appeared on Earth 120 million years ago and now make up several quadrillion individuals present throughout the entire planet.

The teeming layout of Mille milliards de fourmis (“Thousands of Billions of Ants”) has been built to an ant’s scale, allowing visitors to discover their incredible world. A 10-metre long glass structure serves as a window onto the morphology of several ant farms, offering insight into the social system and collective behaviour responsible for their incredible expansion. Scale models, objects, tactile tables and films will answer any questions you might have, and more. Come and see the museum transform into a giant ant colony, right before your very eyes!
