An experience for the senses at the Jardin des Plantes

Publish on Sunday, 5 December 2021 in Visit Paris

The Jardin des Plantes, the nation’s main botanical garden, is less than a 20-minute walk from your Hotel Albe Saint-Michel and currently invites you to discover a completely new exhibition: the Sensory Odyssey. Discover the world and its biodiversity using all your senses and experience intense encounters with the animals and plants that comprise various natural environments ...


Technology in the service of wonder

Sensory Odyssey features ultra-high-definition images projected on giant screens, a state-of-the-art sound system and an ingenious diffusion of ambient scents. These technical feats are totally in the service of this wondrous experience. No words of explanation will distract you from the information your senses will bring you as you step into eight diverse natural environments ranging from a tropical forest canopy to the salt lakes of the African savannah, from a coral reef to the Arctic Circle and more. You’ll be immersed in a sensory adventure that will make you feel at one with the wonders of the natural world ...


A more classic second part

How do you follow such an experience? Well, the Sensory Odyssey has been designed to help you make the most of the adventure you’ve just had. The second part of the exhibition gives you the keys to understand what you could see, feel, hear, and smell throughout the journey that took you from the depths of the world to its heights. Interactive displays, natural specimens and illustrated frescoes offer an analysis and interpretation of all you encountered. It’s also an opportunity to reflect on the place of humans in the living world and on the future possibilities that present themselves to us.

Take advantage of your stay at the Hotel Albe Saint-Michel, in the heart of the Latin Quarter, to discover the beauty, originality, and delights of the Sensory Odyssey exhibition at the Jardin des Plantes, until July 4th, 2022.
