Louvre, Paris, France The famous glass pyramid by architect Ieoh Ming Pei in Paris is a real tourist magnet, but the museum has closed due to the corona pandemic . Nevertheless, interested people have the opportunity to visit the various exhibitions, virtually.
For a few days now, a 4.60 m giraffe has adorned the new monumental hall of the future Orléans Museum for biodiversity and the environment (Mobe). In this vast building under construction, close to the station, the teams took almost a week to move and install this giant of the savannah, an animal that is rarely exhibited in museums. “We had to knock down partitions.

She has been in Orleans since 2012, but the public has never seen it before.

The objective of the museum is to provide a look at nature which is not anthropocentric.
Closed since 2015, cleaned in 2018, and under construction since January 2019, the Mobe was due to reopen in September. But it will be rather at the beginning of next year, due to the confinement and the new working conditions on the construction sites.
