Cabinet de Réalité Virtuelle (Cabinet of Virtual Reality)

Practical information

The Cabinet de Réalité Virtuelle is entirely accessible to wheelchair users and visitors with reduced mobility.

The Cabinet de Réalité Virtuelle is located on the third floor of the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution. Access to the Cabinet de Réalité Virtuelle is via the lifts located on your left when you have your back to the entrance to the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution.

There is same-level access to the Grande Galerie de l’Évolution via a smooth concrete forecourt.

There are two possible entrances to this forecourt:

  • direct access from 36 rue Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire: small step of less than 2 cm
  • access via the Jardin des Plantes: same level

The entrance doors are heavy to open, but a security guard is always on hand inside to help you if need be (the doors have glass in them so the guard can see visitors outside).

During very busy periods, priority entrance (indicated by a sign) to the right of the main entrance.

Please note: the ticket booths have not yet been upgraded to meet current regulations.
