Les Grandes Serres du Jardin des plantes - Muséum national d'histoire naturelle

Entirely renovated and embellished with scenography by the Nathalie Crinière Agency, the four listed hothouses of the Museum reopened in 2010. Profuse tropical forests, arid zones, New Caledonia ... the visitor is like an explorer discovering a range of very different environments. The magic of the place has been retained, and the redesigned museography makes it possible to give the most up-to-date knowledge on plants and raise visitors’ awareness about these environments and the challenges that we are faced with today to preserve them.
