The Jean Leclercq insectarium in Waremme, nicknamed "Hexapoda", is the only museum in Wallonia to offer a fun, scientific journey in the insect world.

Visitors get to learn everything about six-legged insects or hexapods: how they adapt to their environment, live in a group, communicate...

The collections feature 60 live species, hundreds of preserved ones and many pictures to illustrate the theory.
