  • A very nice collection of skeletons prehistoric cetaceans, palmipedes, birds, human, shells, insects and scientific curiosities (human fetus, cat Cyclops, Siamese pig etc...). To see at least once. Too complicated for children. Choose the Gallery of evolution and those of the children

  • A very good, very enriching and informative visit. The place is breathtaking. The room of endangered species is full of emotion. A must visit if you are passing on Paris.

  • This gallery of evolution makes me always the same dream. It was for me the 3rd visit to this magical place. The setting is sumptuous. the lighting is perfect. The collections are incredible and perfect museography. A place to discover 5 to +++. Besides temporary exhibitions are always very well documented. Currently on the bear is very complete. Do not miss a visit to the capital.

  • 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.
