  • Not a huge variety of things to do if too small to go to the children’s gallery but still quite interactive and fun for toddlers. My daughter loved the ocean floor! Then we discovered a wonderful...  more »

  • We come from Argentina and expected more from a parisian Museum Old, poorly mantained, not even a single explanation in english or spanish. IT Was a waste of time.  more »

  • English info is limited, which makes sense since this is a French institution. A few exhibits on the corners of the museum have English info. The Dodo exhibit was exceptionally well written, though not particularly well cared for. Although even if you have a rudimentary understanding of French you'll get most of it. The taxidermy quality here was also quite exceptional if you have an eye for it. All the kids there were engaged throughout the gallery, not sure if it's worth getting the child area pass.
  • Amazing place! The roof and sound effects are so impressive! They have airco if you want to escape from the sun. Would be nice if they have more information on English.
  • In one word : great ! Do not miss this place, which explains what diversity is. Recommend for those who believe human adventure started with Adam and Eve.
  • to begin with, the building is spectacular. The different exhibits are very interesting. I wish there were more videos to help understand evolution. The virtual reality area wasn't working which was very sad.
  • A nicely designed museum with a good mixture of old and new design elements. Main focus is a parade of African animals in the centre of the museum. There is also a nice gallery of extinct and endangered animals. The majority of the displays are only in French but temporary and newer displays are written both in French and English.
