Gardens, galleries, exhibitions…? At the Musée Nationale d’Histoire Naturelle of course! You want to see the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution too? Well, that’s here too and it has been since it opened in 1994. Now the only problem is with this amazing place, which attracts over 10 million visitors annually, is that it can be pretty tough finding somewhere to park! There often isn’t chance of finding a space without having to fend off some pretty tough opposition, coupled with the pretty OTT prices!
But what’s the solution? Booking with Parclick of course! Find a car park that suits you, for as long as you want, in the location you want.
Located on the left bank of the Seine, in the Jardin des Plantes, right in the centre of the French capital. Now this is the main site, which presents its main research focuses: evolution, diversity, aquatic creatures, society and biodiversity management. But to really get the natural history kick, you can go and explore some of its diffusion departments at the Jardin des Plantes, Zoo de Vincennes and the Musée de l’Homme.
Here you’ll find huge, tiny and amazing skeletons, of giraffes, whales, as well as brontosauruses and even a doddo! As well as all manner of weird and wonderful things to spark children’s interests, or you’re not going with children? Well, you can still marvel at the variety of Mother Nature, maybe even have a chat with a local artist, who are often sketching these incredible skeletons to give an extra element of depth to their work - there’s something for everyone!
A highlight for the children? The Children’s Gallery of course.. now you do have to book it, but it’s definitely worth it. It focuses on biodiversity, and has lots of things that the children can touch, all under the supervision of specialist guides, it’s bound to keep them interested!
Fancy exploring the rest of Paris after taking in the wonders of the natural world, say the Eiffel tower, or the catch some art at the Louvre? Easy! Either walk, since you’re already pretty central, or catch the metro lines 7 or 10 from the Jussieu metro station.
