From the Polynesian adventure up to the present day, Easter Island and its inhabitants have an epic history that has been widely commented on, though little is known about it in reality. How have these conditions of extreme insularity affected the development of this unique part of the world, and the mentality of those who live there? Why do some observers claim this island, referred to as the “navel of the world”, is emblematic of the complex relationships between humans and their environment?
The Toulouse Natural History Museum strives to tell this story through a collection of unique artefacts rarely brought together in France.
A new approach enriched by present-day testimonies of the islanders themselves and the latest scientific progress concerning the natural and cultural history of Rapa Nui...
This exhibition forms the core of a cultural agenda marked by several key events throughout the year: get-togethers and conferences (“Thursdays at the Museum” cycle) by specialists on all the latest developments in the field of research, along with original events, shows and workshops to suit all ages.
