  • For me, one of the most beautiful Museum of natural history in Europe. To see absolutely. Children will be delighted to spend a moment and see lots of animals from different parts of the world.

  • A wonderful place to visit with children and adults enjoyed. Granddaughter (5.5 years old) said that it was the happiest day in her life-she saw a dinosaur skeleton. Did a lot of pictures. Stuffed animal dioramas that demonstrate how they live outdoors performed very skillfully.

  • Nice place with perfect expositions. Children should be happy visiting this place. Necative-cafe... it's ok, but it can be much better at place like this.
  • Preserved animals from around the world are exhibited in this museum. There is no ticket fee to enter the museum. It is good place to bring your kids to learn many kinds of animals.
  • Entrance free. Very good experience. Perfect to go at with kids.
  • *** Beware the museum is in french only! *** At first I was very sceptical. I thought that it might be targeted to a younger audience and just went there because a friend of mine was too curious. In the end I was happy I joined! The museum is mostly about animals (which are stuffed). The quality is amazing! In pictures, those animals really look as if they were real. Useful information is provided almost for each animal. The advantage over a zoo is, that the animals are shown very closely which enables the visitor to inspect every little detail of it. The museum is well structured and themed: National animals, exotique land animals, exotique aquatic animals and minerals. I'm not a fan of geology, but in this museum, even the minerals part was interesting. Worth a try!
