  • I enjoyed this as well as the entire garden including the amazing section on orchids. This was a part of Paris I had missed for so many years! It is a pity for me I arrived a bit too early when the flowers in the open garden were not yet in full bloom. Mid to late spring would be the best time to visit this place.
  • One of the best museums of Natural Science I visited. The Gallery of Evolution is amazing, with well-written and simply explained panels. It is worth the reasonable price.
