The Orleans Museum will celebrate its first year of opening on May 19. Already, more than 74,000 visitors have flocked there to discover the fully modernized space.
Laure Danilo, head of the Orléans Museum for Biodiversity and the Environment, and her entire team have no shortage of ideas for bringing visitors back and forth. “I’m hopeful of approaching 80,000 by the time we pass the milestone of the first year,” she says. For this, they have prepared a festive weekend to discover the MOBE in a different way, in particular in connection with the Night of the Museums. In this context, entry will be free on Saturday May 14, from 7 p.m. to midnight (but chargeable the rest of the weekend).
Saturday afternoon, dance initiations will take place in the cafeteria (salsa from 3 p.m. to 3:45 p.m.), rock (from 3:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.), and free dance (from 4:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.).

Discover the new temporary exhibition
Visitors will discover the beginnings of the first temporary exhibition of the MOBE, on the first floor, “CO2 being loaded”, designed with the Laboratory of Climate and Environmental Sciences in Paris, and Labomedia in Orléans. Beginnings, because the installation will be done in several phases. For now, only the first part is in place. The installation of the second phase, visible to the public, will be completed at the end of May. The third phase by the end of June.
“This is part of our desire to open the backstage of the MOBE, justify Laure Danilo and Carole Ortega. In this exhibition, we explain what CO2 is and why it is major in the climate. We will discover the backstage from a lab. We’ll have a huge weather balloon to explain how we catch air in which there is CO2, how we measure its presence. We will present museum collections that naturally emit CO2 and alert us to human emissions.” An interactive device, the time scale allows you to see the evolution of CO2 concentrations over time.
