Visited during a holiday to Paris in August. We visited two zoos and two aquariums during our visit and this was my favourite out of them all! The is smaller than the larger Paris Zoo but also cheaper, and as young adults we received the...More
I strolled around the zoo and found it to be pleasant with a wider range of animals than I had expected. I liked the reptile house - small but interesting. Its wonderful to watch children get excited about seeing animals. I liked the tarantula -...More
We like zoos and visited them in almost every place we go. Menagerie left us with sad feeling as some of the animals like Orangutans seemed depressed. There is a certain charm to the zoo as it is antique but that comes with the price...More
Spent a couple of hours at the menagerie. We were there in the morning so it wasn’t too hot, and there were not too many people. The zoo was surprisingly diverse! Lots of exotic, rare animals, including a very nice collection of reptiles and frogs....More
This small zoo appears to be a century behind the times and although the animals seem healthy a lot of the cages are rusting and look like they are falling apart.
Certainly not worth the admission fee.
We visited this zoo and thought it was very well done. Don’t listen to the people who said animals were in small enclosures. They were very adequate. Some animals at the LA Zoo (where we are from) are smaller! I was surprised to see the...More
I wish I hadn't brought a ticket to the zoo. I left there feeling depressed.
The zoo is set in lovely grounds, - but that's all that is good about it.
A few of the cages seemed empty (which is actually a good thing). The...More
It’s the second oldest zoo in the world. If it’s not to hot there is lots to do. There is the zoo itself and the dinosaur exhibit and close by is the floral atrium. The animal exhibits were clean and well maintained. Animals looked healthy...More
Absolutely disgusted at the condition of this zoo. I understand the charm of trying to maintain the look of a old zoo but the enclosures are too small for many of the animals and many that we saw showed signs of mange and were bored...More
Based upon several visits with my wife, ignore any negative reviews of this small, old, very interesting Paris zoo. Before going, research the location and the history of the zoo on the web. The Menagerie is unique. Very Parisian! You should not compare it to...More
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During
the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
