AGROPOLIS-MUSEUM was conceived as a museum of the world’s food and agricultures by Louis MALASSIS as of 1986, and with the support of the scientific community of Montpellier. In a building that was inaugurated in 1993 several museal sections were successively added to constitute a top level scientific and pedagogic entity which had to close in July 2010 due to lack of funding.

As a result the present site was last updated in May 2011 to only retain pertinent scientific information gathered over the years by various contributors.
