The Early years Museum is a museum space totally devoted to children under the age of 6. It is located on the ground floor inside the Museum of Bordeaux.
All babies is the début exhibition of the Early years Museum. In this dedicated area, children can learn about and be amazed by babies of other species.
Young children seem to be fascinated by animals. They also identify with and show an interest in other ‘babies’. The special union between two parents is the beginning of a new life: a baby.
This exhibition includes specimens from long-standing collections that have been restored but also new collections and new taxidermy mounts of young birds and mammals with their parents. Humans are presented through photos, resin models and drawn outlines serving as points of comparison with other species on display. It was a deliberate choice not to include interactive screens in these exhibition spaces, however several audio devices interact with the specimens in the displays to stimulate curiosity and promote learning for our youngest visitors.
Through the collections, children are encouraged to play and ask questions.
The Early years Museum is open to families and groups looking to spend a moment of quite relaxation and discovery with their little ones.
