    Very nice place to visit, the exhibits are qualities and put in scene. Half a day will be busy, and for those who love plants the Botanical Garden is well diversified. You may be lucky to come across squirrels and frogs. Good visit!

    A beautiful Museum, exciting, very well done. A permanent collection of superb, well-documented, plant in the animal Kingdom. An outdoor garden with greenhouses and botany for all lovers of the garden. Temporary Expos has various themes, for us it was the Raptors. A dining area excellent and quality. And a brilliant, playful Museum Shop wish has reasonable prices. A great Park nearby with beautiful old trees. Short but happiness in this beautiful city of toulouse.
