    Appointed curator in 1857, Victor Brun is a naturalist, but also a member of the Society and holder of most of the collection that makes up the Museum.

    The museum presents a large collection of birds, mammals, phosphorite fossils from Quercy (Lot) and a fragment of the famous Orgueil meteorite that fell near Montauban in 1864. An overview of the wonders of nature ends with the very beautiful and rich collections of primates, shells and insects. If you are curious, pay attention to the slideshows which present the fauna of the Tarn-et-Garonne and the environment in which it evolves. Your next walks will have no more mysteries for you!

    Since April 2021, the museum has acquired a magnificent brown bear which has quickly become the museum's new mascot.
