MUSEUM

Galerie des Enfants - Muséum national d'histoire naturelle

36 rue Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire - 75005 Paris Quartier Latin
Under the subdued light of an enormous glass roof, you can enjoy a spectacular display of life-like animals, which look almost as if they are moving! This permanent exhibition educates visitors about the diversity of the living world, the evolution of different organisms and man’s impact on the environment.

Within the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution, the Galerie des Enfants, designed for families, opened in June 2010. Biodiversity and environmental problems are addressed in a practical and fun way: you can observe, touch, ask questions and be amazed by the diversity of plants and animals from different environments: the city, the river and tropical forests.

The Galerie des Enfants is a permanent exhibition for children aged 6 to 12, accompanied by at least one adult.
