Originating as a medicinal herb garden in the 17th century, the Jardin des Plantes evolved over time into the botanical garden of Paris. It now also contains a small zoo, as well as three galleries that make up the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle (natural history museum). The three galleries are: la Grande Galerie de l'Evolution, Galerie de Paléontologie et d'Anatomie Comparée, and Galerie de Minéralogie et de Géologie. The museum also has branches elsewhere in Paris and the rest of France.
