  • We were yesterday in the garden plants, visiting the Gallery of Botany is very inetructive. On the other hand, we wanted to visit the menagerie: checkout has been good (13 euros for a visit, it is not given), but as soon as this one, a Cerberus (belonging to the staff of the Mayor of paris) Cheesed us telling us about that we press car they close at 6 pm (it was 4:45 p.m., so extraordinary kind). Then, we saw different animals, may the highlight of the visit is in the Reptile House. The, part is in rehabilitation, so no animals, he remains 5 cages with animals, 3 crocodiles, 3 turtles which one appeared dead, go in any zoo, one of the bois de vincennes, particularly, you won't pay much more expensive but you will see the animals in a much more pleasant. I recommend this menagerie even if the rest of the garden is very nice and for some activities paying...

  • While we had not planned the visit to the garden des Plantes, took the opportunity to know him because we went through there. It was a pleasant surprise and we enjoyed the tour. Don't forget to visit it in spring/summer.

  • Large garden between the Seine and the Austerlitz station with lots of things to visit (Museum, great Gallery of evolution, greenhouses, botanical building, menagerie), or simply walk through from the Seine to the street Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. Beautiful orchids in greenhouses (completed March 5, 2018) exhibition, visiting the botanical building is very disappointing (dated, little information, bad Museum). Attention, the greenhouses are in two parts, if you want to see the first greenhouse, to go through the entrance and do the tail.

  • Went there during the winter season so I couldn't enjoy the outside garden but we visited the greenhouses and really loved it! The place is comfortable and full of beautiful plants and trees and cactus! Could stay there for hours, the atmosphere was great.
  • So much to explore. Great day to spend with kids. A lot to talk about and learn. When the kids are tired from too much information, there’s a nice garden outside with zoo and playground for them to burn their energy.
  • What a sight! Though we did not visit the Natural History Museum and its sister buildings, the gardens are stunning and great to stroll through. Lovely!
  • The Jardin des plantes (French pronunciation: ​[ʒaʁdɛ̃ dɛ plɑ̃t]; French for 'Garden of the Plants'), also known as the jardin des plantes de Paris when distinguished from other jardins des plantes in other cities, is the main botanical garden in France. The term Jardin des plantes is the official name in the present day, but it is in fact an elliptical form of Jardin royal des plantes médicinales ('Royal Garden of the Medicinal Plants', which is related to the original purpose of the garden, back in the 17th century). Headquarters of the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle (the French National Museum of Natural History), the Jardin des plantes is situated in the 5ème arrondissement, Paris, on the left bank of the river Seine, and covers 28 hectares (280,000 m²)
  • Great place with a lot of stuff to do if it's not just to enjoy the park. I went to the zoo with my kids, loved it. Next time we'll try those tropical green houses 😁
