Images at Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle

I discovered this somewhat hidden amazing staircase in what was originally the Jardin du Roi. The Musée National d’Histoire at the Jardin des Plantes in itself is stunning. The building itself is worthy of an entire visit, but it’s also filled with animals, stuffed and skeletons from the smallest butterfly to a great blue whale. But finding this treasure hiding behind a normal looking door was the best part. I was the only person there and was too enthralled by every small detail to leave. You can just imagine Louis XV strolling these stairs to visit his collections. And then you get to the top of the marble stairs and it gets even better! #paris #stairwaytoheaven #museenationaldhistoirenaturelle #jardindesplantes #hiddenparis
