Another French tourist attraction taking the tourists money meanwhile making absolutely no effort to communicate (to any great degree) in any language other than French. Just a very average exhibition of animals and geography. This makes our UK museums seem very good indeed.

They museum is very nice, and I found it particularly adapted for children, which is nice. It is behind the botanical garden which is also very nice. They have permanent and temporary expositions, during my visit it was about the Amazonian forest and its population,...More

Lots to see! Didn’t need the temporary exhibition, there was so much to see in the permanent exhibitions. Beautiful butterfly collection and so so many animals. Wish they weren’t real but a visual spectacle. The skeleton displays were really original.

A true museum of natural history with various animal skeletons, stuffed ones, sea and insects. A must visit for kids, a good learning experience. Equipped with a free mobile app audio guide and explanation. Free on the first sunday of every month.

As reviewed below in July, the lack of English signs makes most of the visit meaningless, especially the ground floor display on the effects of volcanoes etc on the earth. There is an extensive rock display. If you like stuffed animals etc there are plenty....More

This is a lovely museum for children. There were plenty of interactive screens and activities for kids to touch and play. Although the exhibits are labelled in French, the web app accessible via the museum WiFi is handy to use and help decipher some displays....More

Went in here and saw the main exhibition and an Easter Island exhibition. Next to nothing in English so we went round in about 30minutes. The Easter Island exhibition had absolutely nothing in English so it took about 10 minutes. I wouldn’t bother.
