We went to the Neanderthal Exhibit and enjoyed it. There was a lot of information, and much of it was in English. I especially liked the end when you looked at a computer screen with various explainations of why they disappeared. You touched a cause...More

The building is absolutely gorgeous, recently renovated without regard to expense, and the cafe has an unbeatable view across to the Eiffel Tower. I had a very nice salad for 7 euros with the best view in Paris. The permanent exhibition is probably targeted at...More

First, let me say we are in France, so 90% of everything in this museum is written in French as it should be. I don’t expect accommodations in English, yet there was plenty of room on each exhibit to make a small sign in English....More

This museum uses the brainpower of countless geniuses, the money of countless taxpayers. It shows a topic which is central to our thoughts. And the result is some show for kids. The result is quite a haphazard set of artefacts, pointing to the message with...More

Heir to the Trocadéro ethnography museum founded in 1882, the Musée de l'Homme aims to present the human race in its variety and diversity from an anthropological, historical and cultural point of view. In my opinion it is one of the most interactive and modern...More

First time ever in this magnificent museum in Paris, but only to focus on the temporary exhibition about the Neanderthals. It was great. We spent roughly 1,5 hours in this great exhibition, which gives a pretty good idea about our "cousins" from the past. There...More

opened after a long renovation. It is nicely presented and has beautiful exhibition halls. The problem with museum of humanity is that it is such a huge subject that the choice of exhibits seems at time a bit random and confusing.

The museum was very open spaced and clean looking. The exhibits were so interesting. I also love how they had this one exhibit on racism in France. It was so well thought out. I also loved how they had all of these mummies and human...More

Trocadero
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
