It was a very nice and interesting museum in '90 but now really few things are remained. It doesn't worth the ticket. If you like prehistoric bones something still remain to see. A lot of screens and videos but really few real things to see....More

The museum building itself was nothing special but the exhibit was very interesting. The material was well presented with examples both written, in French and English and displays.

Both the current Neanderthal exhibit and the permanent exhibit are top of class examples of curatorial excellence. Each exhibit is exceptionally well organized, so that visitors can follow a logical path, getting as much or as little information as they please along the way, but...More

The building itself is worth a visit and situated in line with the Eiffel Tower offers a beautiful view. The exhibits focussed on the ascent of Homo sapiens was fascinating and very interactive. The special exhibit detailing Neanderthal man was very thought provoking. The cafe...More

Musee de l'homme does not attract crowds of tourists unlike other attractions in Paris but it is definitely worth a visit for the exhibitions such as the one on our Neanderthal past, the various spoken languages across the world and, of course, for the awesome...More

Learned a lot about my distance ancestors. Too bad that not everything is translated into English. Being such an attraction, you would think this is standard.

The building is absolutely gorgeous, recently renovated without regard to expense, and the cafe has an unbeatable view across to the Eiffel Tower. I had a very nice salad for 7 euros with the best view in Paris. The permanent exhibition is probably targeted at...More

First, let me say we are in France, so 90% of everything in this museum is written in French as it should be. I don’t expect accommodations in English, yet there was plenty of room on each exhibit to make a small sign in English....More

This museum uses the brainpower of countless geniuses, the money of countless taxpayers. It shows a topic which is central to our thoughts. And the result is some show for kids. The result is quite a haphazard set of artefacts, pointing to the message with...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
