The reference exhibition space «Earth of evolution» of the Museum of Marseille, invites visitors to discover the Living and the Earth that surrounds us. It combines past and current biodiversity and questions the influence of the human species on the evolution of living and environments. It unfolds the story of life on Earth in a new way, around seven central themes, common to living organisms: "Living there", "Reproducing", "Protecting oneself", "Communicating, perceiving", "Breathing or not", "Eating" and "Evolving".

Created in 1819, this year the Natural History Museum of Marseilles celebrates its 200 years and the 150 years of its installation at the Palais Longchamp inaugurated in 1869\. This double anniversary is an opportunity to rethink the Museum’s permanent exhibition spaces in the context of the 21st century to offer visitors a resolutely contemporary vision of the natural heritage.

Opening hours: Tuesday to Sunday: 9am to 6pm. Closed weekly on Mondays, except Easter Mondays and Pentecost Mondays. Closed on 1 January, 1 May, 1 and 11 November, 25 and 26 December.
