  • One of the most impressive Paris tours. The work of staging is splendid. And for specialists, exciting.

  • Visit very rewarding and educational for kids and adults! The architecture of the place is spectacular and the development of animals is remarkable.

  • €11 euro for a large, dark gallery of specimens. Little English. Good for kids and those who need air conditioning or want to watch videos. The museum of paleontology and comparative anatomy at the other end of the park is much better. Frankly, it's ridiculous that the several related museums around this garden have no combined ticket. To see all of them, you need to shell out about €30, paying separately at each. The greenhouse and mineral display are small and unimpressive, and ENGLISH EXPLANATIONS are lacking throughout.
  • Wow! This building is amazing inside. Great selection of taxidermy on show.
  • If you like the animals you will love this place. Great one our tour. 9€ adults till 25 free
  • Very cool museum! The light changes color to simulate day and night and thunderstorms.
  • I love museums, but I think that this is better than the natural history museum in London, at least the main galleries are. My 5 year old daughter loves the video screen that show videos and interactive information on the exhibits. I just wish more was in English, or I spoke better French (there is some translation)

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
