Can we measure what is invisible? And does time really exist? Who can we believe? How to find oneself in the avalanche of scientific information, sometimes contradictory, pouring over us.
This exhibition devoted to science, its methods and its limits, between knowledge and beliefs, invites the visitor to put himself in the skin of a scientist and to experiment by himself.
Created by the Neuchâtel Museum of Natural History, adapted and enriched by the Lons-le-Saunier Museum, this playful and participatory presentation invites the public, through this original means, to (re)discover the diversity of the museum’s collections.
