My husband and I did Paris at a slower pace this time around and stumbled across this museum after walking through the adjoining gardens (which are lovely).
There were replica skeletons for dinosaurs and the woolly mammoth, and full skeletal systems of different whales, turtles,...More
The price you at the entrance is just suggestable. Once you are going to buy the entrance you must tell the cashier you are not going to pay it. You can say you just want to pay something relevant. The price you are told to...More
This is a low-crowd activity. It is a place of awe for those who are even slightly interested in nature, creatures, evolution, rocks, minerals, trees, fossils ... For an enthusiast, it is a whole day activity. The sheer enormity of certain animals existing & extinct,...More
I have often visited the museums in the Jardin des Plantes.
Currently the Minerology Galary is hosting the T Rex Exhibition. I visited it on Thursday, August 30 this year (2018).
I walked in and I walked out within 20 minutes, terribly disappointed.
There was not a big queue at all at the T-Rex exhibit (there are many different museums here) when I went, which was fortunate. The line moved quickly. The rooms are small so if it were crowded it would be squeezy. I had room to...More

An Excellent place for the older and younger generation. The display is very diverse and includes everything from dinosaurs to fossils and it is all very accessible. When we went there were no queues and it was not at all crowded.
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
