  • I found the exposition quite impressive and informative. There were different kinds of animals, some I've never seen before. It's really something to be able to look at real (but stuffed) animals in d...  more »
  • magical visit to one of the largest natural history museum in the world (with London and Washington). The place will appeal to kids and adults.

  • the place is large and beautiful architecture, but I can't find the very educational Museum and the highlighting sometimes questionable (I understand that lighting can be harmful to what is exposed). I don't really like the principle of interactive screens but quite to put, it should be proportional to the size of the Museum. However, I liked the background sound which can be... confusing (I let the surprise). take a ticket by internet allows to avoid the queue. free for children and job seekers

  • 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.
