This natural history museum is based in Caen. The collections were enriched by the contributions from Normandy's Linnean Society, which was founded the same year by Arcisse of Caumont. Though it was first located in a wing of Town Hall, it has since been moved to the palace of the University of Caen. It will depend, therefore, on the collections from the city and the Faculty of Science. In 1944, during the Battle of Caen, the university's palace was destroyed and most of its rich collections were lost. The Musee D'Initiation a La Nature is a wonderful site located in Caen, Lower Normandy, France.
