A day at the Jardin des Plantes and the Museum of Natural History
A Parisian institution and a nature retreat in the heart of the capital, the Jardin des Plantes is also a botanical garden at the forefront of science. To add even more to its appeal, it has a zoo and is the location of the Museum of Natural History and its famous Gallery of Evolution. Don’t miss this fascinating place during your stay at the Hotel Monte Cristo!
The Jardin des Plantes; a green world to discover
The extensive grounds of the Jardin des Plantes are home to no fewer than 11 different gardens in addition to the Museum and its various galleries. From the large greenhouses to the zoo, via the alpine garden, the rose and rock gardens and the perennial plants, biodiversity is in the spotlight. Whether you’re a keen gardener, are fascinated by ecology or just want somewhere beautiful to stroll, the Jardin des Plantes ticks all the boxes, and admission is free!
The magic of science
In the heart of the Jardin des Plantes stand the majestic buildings that house the recently renovated and updated Museum of Natural History. The Gallery of Evolution remains a truly mind-blowing experience but don’t miss the Galleries of Mineralogy and Geology, Paleontology and Botany. The Museum has plenty to offer children, too, including a gallery dedicated to them and a Cabinet of Virtual Reality that will fascinate them. The Jardin des Plantes and the Museum offer an overview of the wonders of nature and an understanding of how it all works.
The Jardin des Plantes and the Museum of Natural History offer a wonderful family day out with garden walks, the opportunity for a picnic break and fun and exciting visits to the various galleries. We at the Hotel Monte Cristo give it our highest recommendation!
