Walk the Garden
Feb 2020 • Couples
What a lovely park for your Sunday morning walks. Gardens are well kept and must be beautiful in Spring and summer. We visited a wee bit early to see everything in bloom but got a good impression of the variety of plants and trees. A must visit in Paris!

Interesting for any age
Feb 2020 • Family
There are so many nice museums in this area. We’ve now done several. This was one of the best in my opinion. All the animals looked so realistic. The taxidermy was just incredible. The fact that the place has a lot of interactive areas makes it interesting for everyone. They had a great display of endangered and vulnerable animals. Places to sit and enjoy the scenery plus a small cafe.

Beautiful exhibition
Jan 2020
It being winter, not at its most lush, but to make up for it they had illuminated sculptures, (similar to the ones in Hoi An, Vietnam). Wow - a lovely walk in the sun via the turtles, hermit crabs, coral reefs, plenty of seating, to enjoy the park and have lunch.

We popped out on the far side of the Jardin and came across one of the Wallace fountains I mentioned in passing - in fact the only one remaining of the mural model, (see review).

Interesting flora
Jun 2019
Many species with explanatory labels, beautiful plants and flowers, very interesting for a specialist or fan in botanics. Nice area to relax or for exercising; actually, several people were jogging the day I was there. A small zoo found on site; I did not enter, but full entrance fee was E$13. Architecture is also part of this magnificent area: Museum of Natural History, Botanical Gallery, Gallery of Mineralogy and Geology. Public toilettes available on site.

Ocean en Voie d'Illumination exhibit is amazing
Dec 2019
We really enjoyed the Ocean en Voie d'Illumination exhibit, it is very well done, colorful, lot of different animals.

This show is a must see to me, even if it is a bit crowed, we also enjoyed the organisation and the food area and the vin chaud that help to warm us up during the cold nights.

Not worth 16 euro ticket unless you have small children
Dec 2019 • Couples
Visited the Jardin des Plantes at night for the Ocean en Voie d'Illumination exhibit where the creatures of the sea came alive in lights. Colorful and vibrant, this display is not worth the time as you walk thorough the garden where giant turtles, jumbo shrimp and a myriad of undersea inhabitants come to life. This is really intended for small children to enjoy. You'll have to dodge the myriad of strollers and small children as you stroll past the light displays.

Not recommended unless you have very small children.

Visit at Night to Enjoy Ocean en Voie d'Illumination
Nov 2019
Visited the Jardin des Plantes during my time in the Latin Quarter and I enjoyed the Ocean en Voie d'Illumination exhibit where the creatures of the sea came alive in lights. Colorful and vibrant, this display is worth the time as you walk thorough the garden where giant turtles, jumbo shrimp and a myriad of undersea inhabitants come to life.
