We had a lovely Easter week-end in Paris with friends from London. We went to spend the day in the 5th Arrondisement, on the Left Bank in the Jardin des Plantes. It's the most popular botanical garden in Paris. The flowers were all in blossom with stunning colours, and there is the most fantastic merry-go-round with hand painted endangered animals.
We actually headed there to visit the Natural History Museum, which is located within the grounds of the garden. The Grande Galerie de L'Evolution is located at the far entrance of the garden, opposite the beautiful Mosque (a great place to relax with tea and oriental cakes).
The kids loved seeing the variety of animals on display. The only thing is they wanted to stroke them which was not really welcome! I love the architecture of the building and the very subtle lighting of the main gallery.
Nice i like it!
