Galerie de paléontologie et d'anatomie comparée Paris Reviews
Old style galery with animals Mar 14, 2007
The galery shows the evolution of animals, but from a devine point of view, so God has a small place in the exhibition too.
The skeletons are placed in rows like the animals are giving a parade. At the front there is a skeleton of a human being. There are three floor in total. Ground floor is to compare skeletons with the human being. The first floor, second for English, is paleontolic, so dinosaurs and other extinct animals there.
The floor above this one is filled with other fossils, but these are from invertabrates, like clams, squids, anemones and insects.
Nice museum, but very old fashioned, which is the charm too.
Every text signs are in either French or in Latin. Latin signs are original from the 1700's and 1800's. They were written for experts, not for tourists.
