The Grevin Waxwork museum in Paris has been closed for a while to undergo a major refurbishment.

Oceans at the Gallery of Evolution, MNHN
For the majority of 2019, the Evolution Gallery of the Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle will play host to an incredible marine spectacle in the form of the new Oceans exhibition. This massive show looks at life in lots of different parts of the marine environment – from the large mammals that travel near the surface to the weird creatures of the deep and all the sharks, fish, corals and oddities in between. Part of the aim here is to show that even though this show is diverse, there is still so much that we don’t know about the oceans.
