Ocean, an unusual dive
Now on - Jan 5, 2020

A hostile world of sub-zero temperatures and skull-crushing pressure inhabited by bizarre lifeforms... Nope, it's not a distant planet in a far-flung galaxy, but something much closer to home. The depths of the ocean are the Earth's final frontier, and they're inhabited by some of the strangest creatures in the world.

This exhibition lets you explore the incredible biodiversity that lurks in the deepest depths of our oceans. Discover the microscopic world of plankton, the state-of-the-art technology that makes deep-sea exploration possible, and the otherworldly creatures who manage to survive in some of the most extreme environments on the planet.

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.

Nous avons visité la Grande Galerie avec notre petite fille de 10 ans.
Ce fut une première et une très belle découverte.
N'hésitez pas à prendre un billet pour la Galerie des Enfants où nous avons passé deux heures ludiques et riches en découvertes de toutes sortes !
