Grande Galerie de l’Évolution (Gallery of Evolution)

Practical information

The majority of the exhibits to see and visit in the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution are visual. Nevertheless, some exhibits come with an audio recording but there are no French Sign Language or text subtitles.

Most of the multimedia interactive exhibits do not have sound, just a visual interface.

Please note:

  • the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution is relatively noisy during busy periods, which can be problematic for visitors with hearing aids.
  • the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution does not have an induction loop amplifier since the building’s metal structure prevents it from working properly.
  • the Grande Galerie is a very dimly-lit space, which means it is not very easy to lip-read.
