As a museum, this seems a bit ho-hum, with many glass cases of carefully preserved and curated artefacts in room after room but, regrettably from the viewpoint of foreign visitors, no foreign explanations. However, if you are interested, then it is worthwhile paying the admission...More

I was really looking forward to this museum and dreamed of all the goodies this place must hold. The reality was wasted time, wasted trip across Paris and wasted entrance fee. The entrance fee got me in to see a couple of rooms on one...More

I didn't expect to find myself in a natural history museum on my vacation but I was very happy that I did. It's a well-stocked natural history museum, well-organized and the surrounding grounds are just lovely. Located not far from Paris, do yourself a favor...More

Builders operating noisy irritating equipment, staff being driven out of their minds by the racket. They still charge full admission despite the dust and noise. It's a bit of an affront don't you think? There's a fascinating German WW2 bunker at the Paris end of...More

As part of our Viking River Cruise we visited this beautiful building. Walk around the grounds, nice view of river. A nice walk into town. It is fantastic to see this construction.

There is an impressive collection of artifacts in this lovely building and you can have the pleasure of not having big crowds. I personally prefer the wow effect of dinosaurs and other visual art so this was not my thing
