National Museum Of Natural History - Review
Learn about the proud but extinct dodo at Galerie de l’evolution and admire hunks of meteorites at the Galerie de Mineralogie et de Geologie or just admire the stuffed animals parading through their natural habitats at this incredible museum. Located in a majestic building, the museum is both informative and fun for kids and adults alike. You will be able to see the remains of dinosaurs, birds, monkeys and even humans within a distance of a few feet. La Menagerie located in the Jardin des Plantes complex is the oldest zoological garden in the world. It has a lot of rare medium sized and small animals.

National Museum Of Natural History, Paris Reviews
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.
A truly stellar museum! I loved the hall of bones: skeletons of small animals like mice and turtles, all the way up to giraffes, elephants and whales, and, of course, dinosaurs (on the 2nd level). The museum is comprised of several buildings, all accessed with your one-time, 9€ entrance free (kids are free up to age 18, or 26 for Europeans), which cover a variety of the natural world, such as botany, paleontology, or space. There is something for everyone at this science museum, and it's such a lovely park to walk through whether you visit a museum or not. A truly worthwhile experience in Paris!
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.
Beautiful museum. You will think you have stepped into Jules Verne's secret Laboratory as soon as you enter the grand hall. The exhibits arranged nicely with ocean life in the basement going up to land mammals on the ground floor then birds and monkeys on the upper levels. the museum is also surrounded by a gorgeous Park that you should take some time and explore. I highly recommend this for something off the beaten path for when you're in Paris.
Excellent collection of all kinds of animals. Interesting for children and adult. You can see real canguros in the garden outside. Very beautiful also the tropical glasshouse
