Micropolis, la cité des insectes (city of insects) is situated in the Lévézou region of France, at Saint-Léons, near Millau. Micropolis is a museum dedicated to entomologist Jean-Henri Fabre and inspired by the film, Microcosmos.
Micropolis aims both to popularise knowledge of insects and to answer the questions:
- what is an insect?
- how do they live together?
- what are the links between plants and insects, and humans and insects?
- what can they see?
- what can they smell?
Micropolis is also a scientific centre with an experimental station on biodiversity.
