The Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Grande Galerie de l'evolution

The Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle is the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, France.

The museum was formally founded on 10 June 1793, during the French Revolution. Its origins lie, however, in the Jardin royal des plantes médicinales (Royal Medicinal Plant Garden) created by King Louis XIII in 1635, which was directed and run by the royal physicians.

The Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle is a government institution developing research, collections, expertise and education in the fields of Natural History and Human Sciences.

 

 

Inaugurated in 1889 as the Galerie de Zoologie, the museum fell into disrepair in the mid-1900s, with the ceiling destroyed and the specimens exposed to the elements. A huge renovation was undertaken and the museum reopened in 1994 as the Grande Galerie de l'Évolution and now offers a fascinating trip through the history of the various species. The first two floors focus on the diversity of the world, the third on human's impact on the environment, and the fourth on evolution.
