Jurassica Museum

Comètes & Co

JURASSICA Museum opened its doors to visitors once again on 13 May 2020 with the launch of a new temporary exhibition, "Comets & Co". The museum has introduced additional hygiene measures so that visitors can make the most of the exhibition and enjoy a pleasant visit.

JURASSICA Museum is delighted to present a new version of the "Comets & Co" exhibition originally displayed at the Cité de l’Espace in Toulouse. This temporary exhibition takes visitors on a whistle-stop tour of space.

Come with us to discover the fascinating world of the oldest and least understood objects in our solar system. Comets were around at the birth of the solar system, some 4.6 billion years ago! And their cores contain valuable clues to our origins…

With fun areas, a full-size model, astronomical discoveries and a lunar module, "Comets & Co" takes visitors on a voyage of discovery through a series of themed spaces.

Embark on a thrilling educational adventure that offers something for everyone, explorers and dreamers, young and old…
