I liked this place, but I have to admit it's a bit macabre and I'm not sure if it's something for smaller kids to enjoy. The exhibited animals are really amazing and it's great to get to know the story behind everything. I think one visit is enough so I'd probably pass on a second visit. Still a sold 3/5 stars.
This was one of my daughter's favourite places in London. We were just as entertained as she was. Not only were the exhibits interactive and interesting, but the architecture here was neat. Unfortunately, it was a bit hot we went went because we went during a heat wave but it was still a wonderful place. You could easily spend hours, if not the whole day, with the family here.
I went there with my 5 yo kid. He was excited about all the animals and sceletons for sure but floors 2-4 have less to offer kids as the building overall is very dark and one can barely see insects and smaller animals. Some screens offered interactive games which were fun but not many. No lines. Cheap. Tickets were 10Eur total for both of us. We spent 2 hours there.
I was at the gardens only, it was free and I had a wonderful time smelling and touching herbs and all sorts of plants. There's a cart outside where they sell the most delicious French ice cream. Loved this place.
One of the highlights of Paris would definitely be this museum. Great collection of bones and educative signs, this is definitely something that should not be missed whenever in the city!!! It might not be that big, but visiting it is definitely worth it.
