See his classroom, complete with period furnishings (desks, lockers).

Enter the atmosphere of the 1930's to the 1960's (inkwells, fountain pens ...) which will bring back memories for many. Louis Gauthier took his pupils into nature and little by little the classroom was transformed into a veritable small museum.

See 196 boxes of insects and 102 boxes of butterflies, as well as 164 stuffed animals (fish, reptiles, birds, mammals..). A true treasure of fascinating entomology, perfect for those with a passion for the natural sciences!
