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.
