These galleries were inaugurated in 1898 for the 1900 Paris World Fair and are a glorious example of the metal architecture so dear to Eiffel. Globally speaking, they are one of the oldest testaments to the movement away from the concept of a reserve collection which can be visited towards that of an exhibition. On display here are specimens of great historical and scientific value, such as a large number of dinosaurs, mammoths, the skeleton of Louis XV’s rhinoceros and many more besides.
