What to expect

The Ménagerie, the zoo of the Jardin des Plantes, is a vast wooded area covering several hectares where nature is omnipresent, in all its forms. As visitors wander the pathways, they will stumble upon enclosures and buildings where the animals are housed. Two entrances lead to the Ménagerie from Jardin des Plantes (Garden of Plants).

Tucked away in a lush haven of serenity, the Ménagerie is home to 200 or so species, a third of which are threatened with extinction. Welcome to the jardin des plantes zoo, which is also a centre for species conservation and a renowned research centre in the heart of Paris.
