Paléontological Museum Of Paris
The Museum of Natural History occupies a territory in which the Botanical Garden is also located. It is part of the historic part of Paris at the Seine Coast near the famous Latin Quarter and Sorbonne. There are many museum buildings, such as those designed for public exhibitions, so occupied by scientific repositories, laboratories and the library. There is also a small zoo, open visitors, human museums and educational centres. This territory has been designed for research since the 18th century and some of its buildings have been built at that time. The building where J. Kuvier lived and worked is now being used by the Comparison Anatomy Laboratory. This museum and this botanical garden are linked to many developments in science in general and in the development of biology in particular. J.L.L. Buffon, Alexander Bronyar, Adolph T. Bronyar, J.B. Lamarck, A. D'Orbini, E.J. St. Iller and many other scientists who have laid the foundations of modern science. As a scientific mecca, scientists from all over the world have come and continue to come.

The Museum is proud of its collection of bugs, which is recognized as the richest in the world. It has 17 million edited copies stored in 80,000 boxes and accounts for more than half of the collection of insect museums and almost a quarter of the entire zoological collection of museums. The range also includes the largest variety of taxons of all ranks, with the widest possible representation of the diversity of modern world animal bugs in general, as well as in individual zoographic areas. It has about 185,000 types, and it seems that several million synptics, not identified among the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, still need to be studied and distributed.
