In the very pretty setting of Garden of plants, the Great Gallery of Evolution, A huge hall surrounded on three balconies lit by a canopy of 1000 square meters, houses 7000 specimens of the terrestrial worlds and aquatic. They do not speak anymore but tell us a lot! The place is magic. To eat in the area, we recommend the restaurant Les Belles Plantes, perfect with children (children's menu, terrace in good weather). And it's open on Sundays! And to taste it, the inevitable Café Maure of the Mosque of Paris, for its oriental pastries and its exotic setting.

WE LOVE :  the impressive animals that form a caravan in the central nave
