In recent years, the Walloon collections, which were bequeathed to the Natural Sciences Museum in Brussels until the middle of the 20th century, have had their own place of validation. Attached to the Functional and Evolutionary Entomology Department of Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech, the Conservatory brings together groups of students, professors, generous donors and eminent Belgian and foreign entomologists.

All these entomological, mineral and fossil collections, the arboretum and herbaria are magnificent educational tools.

As illustrations of the theoretical courses, they offer the opportunity to discover a large number of natural wonders.
