Musée de la Nature et des Sciences

Musée de la Nature et des Sciences Review

Making good use of its lofty space, this museum is housed in an elegant building with granite floors and marble stairs—it was once a factory known for the silk stockings it made. State-of-the-art light and sound effects (the buzzing of mosquitoes may be too lifelike) and hands-on displays enhance the exhibits, which include fossilized lizards, ancient arrowheads, dried butterflies, and stuffed beavers.
