On the trail of great apes at the MNHN in Paris : such a nice exhibition!

Last Sunday, we went to the National Museum of Natural History to see their latest exhibition  : On the trail of great apes… We loved it! The exhibition was so complete : a mix of paleontologic, historic, naturalist and ecologic approaches… All of them  permit to have a large scape of our cousins 😉 !

The exhibition is full of life : stuffed apes, realistic sculptures, reproduction of the Virgin Forest, films…. and lots of interactive activities (maps, games,…). You can go with children from 6 years-old (a bit complicated for younger ones I personally think)

The journey leads us from Old Times to nowadays and makes us think about our own nature and our present role in the world ecosystem.… The lesson to be learned is not ambivalent : we’re directly responsible for the Virgen Forest destruction and for the great apes progressive extinction!

In short, I just can advise you to go and see this beautiful and contemporary exhibition ! A way to better know the world and ourselves!

Emilie.
