More from this fascinating museum. At every turn there were visual surprises of all types – from the wonderful architecture and embellishments to the many, varied collections. And, while I have many other images from this recent trip as well as new local work to get busy on, I find it hard to break away from this particular treasure trove of images.
For brevity sake, I had previously referred to this museum as the Paris Natural History Museum. To be precise, it is officially titled the “Gallery of Paleontology and Comparative Anatomy,” one of fourteen sites (four of which are in Paris) that comprise the French National Museum of Natural History.
The view from the third floor, looking down on dinosaurs and other extinct animals. That third floor balcony displays the invertebrate collection.
And one final view from another museum, the Musee D’Orsay.
Thank you as always for visiting. More images at www.artmurphy.com
