Originally opened in 1882 and recently renovated, this museum traces the evolution of humankind through artefacts gathered from around the world. There are few English labels, and the transitions between exhibits sometimes lack coherency, but there are nevertheless some fascinating pieces on display, including a Cro Magnon shell necklace, delicately carved mammoth tusks and reindeer jawbones, a variety of Paleolithic stone tools and a Peruvian mummy. Great views of the Eiffel Tower from the ground-floor restaurant and 2nd-floor cafe.
