This magnificent 26 hectare botanical garden is right in the heart of Paris and its galleries, gardens, greenhouses and large amphitheatre provide a stunning backdrop for your events.

The gardens

The Jardins de la Perspective: from the Place Valhubert to the Esplanade Milne Edwards
Five hectares of lush greenery in the heart of Paris! This formal French-style garden and its unique perspective, with the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution as a backdrop, is THE venue for a magnificent outdoor evening function. It offers a wide range of options and its spaces can accommodate different types of events.

The Carrés
The Georges Ville and Guy de la Brosse avenues in the centre of the Perspective provide 2 areas, each around 300 m2. Temporary structures can be put up there. Your guests will be able to admire the magnificent Carrés flowerbeds during their cocktail party or dinner.

The Esplanade Milne Edwards
This superb space in front of the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution is around 2,000 m2 and can accommodate up to 1,500 people for a cocktail party.

The Jardin d’été and the Grandes Serres
The lawn running alongside the Tropical Greenhouse is around 600 m2 and can accommodate a temporary structure for receptions. In the evening, when the Grandes Serres are closed to the public, your guests will be able to get away from it all and discover the fabulous plant collections inside them.

The Allée Cuvier
This private green oasis measures 200 m x 10 m and is 6 - 8 m in height (depending on how the trees have been pruned!). A timeless venue far away from the city, which can accommodate temporary structures for fashion shows, showrooms, dinners and cocktail parties.

The Square
When holding a convention at the Muséum’s Grand Amphithéâtre, why not organise your lunchtime or evening cocktail party under a temporary structure? The 300 m2 area allows you to comfortably entertain your 315 guests in a lovely wooded setting just a stone’s throw from the amphitheatre. Ideal for seminars.
