Sunlight has played a key part in the evolution and diversity of living organisms. Thanks to this life-giving energy, we can see a variety of species inhabiting various ecosystems, whether on land, in water, in the air or in the ground. The exhibition Light and Life will take you through all these environments.
 
To a greater or lesser extent, the majority of species are dependent on sunlight. However, it turns out that some species have adapted very well to life without light, and can survive, for example, in deep caves. These species, too, will be introduced in this exhibition, which is inspired by the ability of individual species to survive in the given light conditions and adapt to them.

Jolly cartoon characters will guide child visitors, and not only them, through the exhibition.
