Galerie de Paléontologie


Hello my readers! Today’s post is a real quick one, I just wanted to show you this incredible museum find in Paris: Galerie de paléontologie et d’anatomie comparée. I paid a visit to it after class earlier this week (after some yummy sweet tea at the Mosque across the street), and it really is a sight to see. This museum is all about animal skeletons, ranging from modern day ones (a whale) to ones that go a little further back (dinosaurs!). While not for the light of heart, this one hour trip (housed in the middle of the stunning Jardin des Plantes) was quite a spectacular experience. The up-keeping is impeccable, and the building floods with light. Click through to see some more photos, and I really do hope you pay a visit if you ever find yourself in Paris! And P.S.: EU citizens under 26 get in for free. Score!

Is this something that you think you would enjoy? Let me know in the comments! I know these sorts of places aren’t for everyone 😉

      Hey Leesa! Thank you so much for your kind comment, and taking the time to read!! This comment has honestly made my night, and also made me more motivated to post something again (going live in hopefully the next half hour!). Hope you are having a wonderful time at college :) And I have followed your tumblr, we actually have super similar tastes (I’m Ginger & Rosa obsessed)
