Exhibition : Human and the Bee

Within our garden, here you can observe the wonderful world of bees, thanks to an enthusiast bee keeper our museum aim was to increase our visitors' knowledge of bees, and the special bond that they have shared with people throughout history

... from honey hunter, human become beekeeper ...

To ensure that you have a smooth and pleasant visit we divided the visit into three parts

L'homme à travers les âges

Man and the bee throughout the ages

In the first part of the tour, we will guide you through the history of beekeeping. At first, Man had to do to woodland habitats to gather honey. This then evolued into beekeepings with fixed frames (e.g. inside hollow trees), and then onto the more modern and versatile beehives were changed completely : developing from the manual crushing of honeycombs, to a more efficient mechanical extraction process

les Abeilles

A bee's life

Tthe second part aims to illustrate the mesmerizing world of bees (observing bees in and around the hive with the help of pictures and videos). You will see queen lay her eggs, the active bees at work, and the more specific role of the drones (male bees). We also think it's important to compare and contrast bees to other hymenopteran insects ( A highly specialised order of similar insects, including humble bees, wasps and hormets) durring the tour.
