Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle

Recommended
Created by Bernardin de Saint-Pierre, the Natural History Museum displays its superb collections in the mineralogy, geology and comparative anatomy galleries, while the menagery, covering an area of 4 500m², is home to around a thousand animals. However, the star attraction is without a doubt the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution, dedicated to the diversity of the living world and the influence of man on the evolution of species.
