  • Animals exhibited in the historic and modern buildings were most impressive. And just look at the pretty useless to the theory of evolution was an inconsistent spot and I feel. And how to exhibit animals in Noah's Ark of. This is the wit?

  • When you walk into this place, we're very surplus. The effects of light on the building is beautiful! When the animals, they are really beautiful! (Especially the elephant which is impressive ^^)

  • Great collection, BUT NO ENGLISH (thus the loss of 1 star) - they should offer wifi so non French speaking guests can use translators. It helps if you have some knowledge of evolution so you can decipher the collections(if you can't read the texts). The extinction gallery is worth a look. Still enjoyable though.
  • An amazing surprise, and definitely a place to bring young kids, but not only! Outside, the building has been well renovated. Inside, the history of evolution is easily explained, and you can find a lot of animals of both the sea-world and the savannah. The must is the fact that the museum creates a unique environment, where the weather and the light is controlled randomly, so you can experience a thunderstorm as if you were in Africa...
  • Great collection of taxidermized animals. The exhibits on evolution are well presented, although the French text isn't always translated in English.
  • Extraordinary display of the diversity of wild animals, and of the role of humans on saving or destroying them. The building itself is beautiful, and lights and sounds inside are recreating weather changes for even more realism.
  • Fantastic building & exhibits. Friendly & helpful attendants. Not expensive for what is there.
