From 6 to 16 October: "Jean-Henri FABRE, 200 years of inspiration" exhibition.

The REQUIEN Museum retraces the life of Jean-Henri FABRE, which alternated between encounters and moments of solitude. From Saint-Léons (in Aveyron) to Sérignan-du-Comtat, via Avignon (Vaucluse) and Ajaccio (Corsica), this is how one of France's most famous naturalists came to be. A friend of Esprit REQUIEN and the third curator of the Avignon Natural History Museum, he left a lasting mark, which is presented in the museum's collections.
