Situated in a former 18C hospital, this museum is devoted to the flora and fauna of the lake (aquariums with most of the species of fish). The visit starts in rooms dedicated to the Piccard dynasty, three generations of whom left their mark on scientific experimentation. The tour ends with a section that seeks to raise awareness concerning the protection and preservation of nature.
