LES GALERIES D’ANATOMIE COMPARÉE ET DE PALÉONTOLOGIE

 

Once you have exhausted the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution move on to see what lies beneath all the fur, feathers, scales and skin by stepping into the exquisite building which is home to incredible displays of skeletons from hundreds of animal species. Glass cabinets and cases display skeletons of all size, shape and form, including sizeable dinosaurs, fossils and other extinct species. It is fascinating to wander among the bones and examine the weird and wonderful contents in the glass jars, reminiscent of an anatomical laboratory. This will either thrill or horrify youngsters depending how gory or squeamish they are. A great add on to a visit to the Galerie de l’Evolution and most highly recommended. The kids, particularly mini palaeontologists or budding pathologists, should love it as it's a unique and enthralling delight.
