Welcome to Le cabinet
de curiosités
By Sweet Flamingo.

To take a break in your day or right after your museum’s visit, you can find all our homemade cakes and lunches in our coffee shop and museum store.

Give yourself a tasty moment either in the old library, under the wonderful golden chandelier or under the tree shadows in the yard.

The Cabinet de Curiosités museum store offers articles as ethical, ecological or local as possible, without falling into unaffordable prices.

History of Cabinet

After 5 years in the same nest, our team wanted to meet some other animals. Where else then the natural history museum for that ?

When Lillle’s municipality offed us to create a new nest in the old library of rue Gosselet, we did not hesitate for a split second and set our mixing bowls, stuffed animals and cake forks as soon as possible.

We’ve decided to create a modern cabinet of curiosities that will amaze young and old alike, which will be a mixture of culture and gluttony. We’ve made it a living, magical and warm place that will make you travel.

Le Cabinet de Curiosités is located within the Lille Natural History Museum, renovated in 2021 to receive the public in the best conditions. It is a place steeped in history, inaugurated in 1894 to house the laboratories of the University of Lille and its geological and zoological collections.

In more than 100 years, the institution has evolved a lot. Our Cabinet de Curiosités is located on the ground floor in the old library of the building, under the majestic chandelier.
