Every year, the Jardin des Plantes festival of lights presents a nighttime light stroll in a magical atmosphere ! Gigantic animal statues illuminated at nightfall take over the place.
This year, it’s time for Enlightening evolution, a new night walk that returns from November 29, 2021 to January 30, 2022. More than a hundred original light structures, the fruit of the research and reconstruction work of the Museum’s paleontologists, represent the astonishing species that have populated the Earth over the past 600 million years. You will see dinosaurs, but also little-known species that will surprise you with their astonishing shapes and their unique lifestyles. All the species that are unveiled to you here have indeed existed, but all have now disappeared. The Enlightening Evolution combines art, science and poetry. Admire past biodiversity while letting yourself be carried away by the magic of lights: wonder guaranteed!
