You can enjoy a spectacular display of life-like animals, which look almost as if they are moving! This permanent exhibition educates visitors about the diversity of the living world, the evolution of different organisms and man’s impact on the environment.
Despite the name, the Natural History Museum is not a single building, but a collection of sites throughout France. Its historic home is in the Jardin des Plantes, and it’s here you’ll find the greatest number of branches: taxidermied animals in the excellent Grande Galerie de l’Évolution , fossils and dinosaur skeletons in the Galeries d’Anatomie Comparée et de Paléontologie and meteorites and crystals in the Galerie de Minéralogie et de Géologie.
the National Museum of Natural History became a site of significant scientific research in the 19th century. Of the three museums here, the four-floor Grande Galerie de l’Évolution is a particular winner if you’re travelling with kids: life-sized elephants, tigers and rhinos play safari, and imaginative exhibits on evolution, extinction and global warming fill 6000 sq metres. The temporary exhibits are generally excellent. Within this building is a separate attraction – the Galerie des Enfants – which is a hands-on science museum tailored to children from ages six to 12.
The Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle is truly an amazing collection that is a must see!
