Founded in 1828, the museum of Tournai opened its door to public in September 1829. In 1839, it settled for good in the current building, with a neoclassical architecture created by Bruno Renard. Since its creation, the museum of Tournai has acquired thousands of surprising, rare and unusual animal species coming from all around the world. The tour of the museum continues with the visit of the vivarium where live more than 70 species of reptiles, amphibians, fish, and various invertebrates. Member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria, the vivarium is actively engaged in safeguard, protection and reproduction programs for endangered species and in awareness of the citizens to the nature preservation.
