Ocean; an Unusual Dive at the Grand Gallery of Evolution

Ocean; an Unusual Dive at the Grand Gallery of Evolution

Want to immerse yourself in the depths? Seeking to discover a little-known world inhabited by strange creatures? Then it's time to book a break in Paris at the Hotel Doisy Etoile and visit the Grand Gallery of Evolution in the Jardin des Plantes!


‘Ocean’ is much more than an exhibition

The Grand Gallery of Evolution has been given a new look and is now an even more exciting destination for all ages; a place where science is accessible, understandable and utterly fascinating. In addition to the permanent collections, the Grand Gallery offers temporary exhibitions such as Ocean; an Unusual Dive, part of its Ocean Season. Much more than a chronicling of species, this exhibition offers a striking reflection on the potential of the oceans and the challenges they represent, as well as the unknown wonders, ranging from the minuscule to the huge, which they conceal and, finally, on the myths to which they give rise.


Make the most of this stunning exhibition

Ocean; an Unusual Dive will be featured in the Grand Gallery of Evolution of the Jardin des Plantes until January 5th, 2020 and is open every day. You can avoid queuing by buying your tickets in advance on the Jardin des Plantes website. This enthralling exhibition is suitable for all ages, including children of 5 years and up, thanks to its many striking visuals and interactive experiences, and for adults to whom the weightier themes are addressed. Of course, it would be a shame not to combine your visit to the exhibition with an exploration of the Jardin des Plantes and its zoo, as well as the Grand Gallery and its impressive collection of specimens reflecting the vast diversity of life on Earth.

The Jardin des Plantes and its temporary exhibitions are easily accessible by public transport from your Hotel Doisy Etoile. We’ll give you all the information you need!
