The Museum
All the family can learn

The museum presents a fun introduction to more than 250 species of birds in their natural environments.

- a room all about migration, migration techniques, the dangers birds face and their records featuring three emblematic species:  the Barn Swallow, the Greylag Goose and the Bar-Tailed Godwit.
- an exhibit on the People of the Bay who shape and live in the estuary along with the shellfish gatherers, sheep farmers and hunters.


THE MUSEUM IS ALSO

- a room all about the colony of common seals which live in the Baie de Somme
- a collection of waders , ducks and other coastal bird decoys carved in wood, used by hunters in hides
- a projection room: take a few moments to better understand the evolution of the Baie de Somme.
A date for your diaries: This summer, in July and August, in partnership with the Festival de l'Oiseau (Bird Festival), the Maison de la Baie de Somme is holding a nature film event, an opportunity to view selected award-winning films during the Festival (programme available in June)
- two expanses of water where iconic coastal species such as the Black-headed Gull, Plover and Snipe can be found feeding or nesting, and where you’ll also find a number of exhibitions. Right now around the lake: the 14 iconic birds of the Baie de Somme.


THE CHILDREN AREA
We haven’t forgotten about children, either, with a special section with hands-on games that will expand throughout the season, and a booklet with nature challenges to take on during your visit.
