The Geological section is right up there with the best museum displays in the world and worth paying the admission fee for alone. The other sections, lab, café and gardens are all good and make for an excellent overall experience.

Very disappointed. Not much stuff all in french and the place seemened abandoned in some areas. I didn't felt this was a very well organized museum to be honest. The people that worked here however were very nice.
