Nîmes notes

a picture diary from a Roman town in the south of France

Stuffed animals and much more

Nîmes’ history dates back much earlier than just Roman history – the Museum of Natural History leads you through it (and it’s free!). Lions have later travelled towards Africa, reindeers towards Northern Europe, but there are still many traces of them (and other long gone animals) seen here and there (like in fossiles). The museum was founded in 1895 and is classified as the sixth in France in richness of the collection (told my little leaflet).
