Virelles Aquascope

The Virelles Aquascope, a journey from the bottom of the pond to the highest treetops.

In the museum area, you will dive all the way into the heart of the lake. Invertebrets will reveal their characteristics and tips. Share the meal of the heron and muskrat! Later, pack your bags to go on a journey with the eel or to go snorkling with the beaver and otter! Afterwards, transform yourself into a dragonfly! These invertebrets are real champions, aren't they? On big screen, you can track the lake life throughout the seasons. During weekends and school vacations, there is a nature guide that will tell you all the secrets thanks to the cameras on site.

Ready for the hike? Now is the time to get to know the lake from up close: beneath the water, by the water and even from the treetops!

Prepare yourself for a journey back in more than 500 years of the lake's history, in which many changes took place over the years. In the end, you will learn how to contribute to the protection of the environment and the nature on a daily basis. That way, you can spend an entire day in full nature!

On site you will find a tavern, a little shop and a large playground. Throughout the year: temporary art exhibitions, nature events, canoe trips, adult education...

Children’s activities:
Discovery area on life in fresh water - projection hall (film: “The Four Seasons of Virelles” + live projection of the weekends and school vacations) - exterior informative fun trail (observation of life under water at the Moses wall, discovery trail of under water environments, tree bridge, observation tower, modules concerning the environment and sustainable development...) - large playground
