If Noah's Ark were real, it might look like this! Enter a world of evolution in the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution. Get up close to 7,000 preserved animal specimens, from elephants to insects, polar bears and cheetahs. You can also see a car that's been smashed by a meteorite!

From anatomy, fossils and molecules, to the giant squid waving its tentacles at everyone who passes, this animal-packed hall within the Natural History Museum makes for any inquisitive kid's dream day. And it might just be yours too.

With four floors of mammals, sea animals and insects to look at up close, the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution is a journey into the history and diversity of wildlife on Earth.

Uncover the interaction between man and nature in different parts of the world, and find out how naturalists like Lamarck, Darwin and Mendel changed the way we look at life on our pale blue dot.

The perfect escape on a rainy day in Paris.
