With an original presentation that totally immerses the visitor, the Valais Nature Museum presents the evolution of the relationship between humans and their environment, from the Mesolithic age until today. The natural environments of the Valais, with their typical fauna and flora, create the background for the exhibition spaces. Throughout the tour, they are presented either as support for the geological
and biological diversity of the landscape or as the basis for human activity.
As the tour progresses, the barrier between the visitors and the objects on display symbolizes the increasing separation between human beings and their environment. In this way, visitors will be able to reflect on their own relationship to nature and imagine what the future developments might be.
