Natural history museum

A heritage of the Paris Royal Botanical Garden created in 1635, the Paris Natural History Museum displays its collections in the Jardin des Plantes.

Its principal attractions are the Hall of Evolution devoted to the evolution of life, the gallery of paleontology, its collection of dinosaurs, giant birds and insects.

Add to them the gallery of mineralogy, with 600 000 minerals, giant cristals and royal precious stones.

The Paris Natural History Museum is both fascinating for adults and impressive for children.

In addition to the museum, lots of flowers and a nice little zoo, the Jardin des Plantes features magnificent 19th century tropical glasshouses, reopened in June 2010.

These are indeed precious and welcoming addresses in winter, when the wind is freezing outside.
