    We were a bit skeptical about whether to enter or not in this that could be called "natural" but then we walked in and were more than satisfied because in addition to the architecture, the part dedicated to all kinds of gardens was really outstanding. Experience to do. Free admission all nice and clean

    The botanical Gallery of the National Museum of Natural history in Paris, is located in the Jardin des Plantes, has the largest collection of plants in the world, very cool.

    Near the Gare d'Austerlitz, on the river Seine lies the lovely well-kept Park with a botanical garden, natural history museum, and a labyrinth. A pleasant place for walks weather permitting

    Great museum with a very large collection of stuffed animals. The modern interior of the building is also interesting. However, it is very unfortunate that most exhibits are poorly lit, and some rooms are practically completely in the dark, making it impossible to see the animals. The sound effects are sometimes too loud and annoying.

    It's a crime that the several museums around this garden have no combined ticket. To see all of them, you need to shell out OVER €30!!! paying separately at each. The greenhouse and mineral display are small and underwhelming, and ENGLISH translations are LACKING throughout. The only one worth the price of admission is the paleontology/anatomy gallery. Just go there; it's amazing.

    Most of the information aren't in English. It is annoying when you saw the nice stuffed animal but couldn't learn anything about them. The museum has a lot of foreign visitors so I found it surprising that the descriptions weren't in bilingual like other museums in Paris I visited.

    This museum is located in one of the most beautiful parks of Paris. I'd recommend to bring your kids and spend a whole day. They will love the huge dinosaur skeletons.

    The space was amazing, as were the exhibits. The staff was engaging, even with young children. We had a great time and definitely recommend it for other families.

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.
