Opened on 6 October 1860 by Napoléon III and Empress Eugénie, the Jardin d'Acclimatation de Paris or the Jardin Zoologique d'Acclimatation as it was first called was a Paris zoo (not to be confused with Paris Zoological Park in Bois de Vincennes). It was directed by Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, son of the naturalist Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, until his death in 1861.

During the Siege of Paris (1870-1871), many of the animals in the zoo were cooked and served by chef Alexandre Étienne Choron.

From 1877 until 1912, the Jardin Zoologique d'Acclimatation was converted to "l'Acclimatation Anthropologique". In mid-colonialism, the curiosity of Parisians was attracted to the customs and lifestyles of foreign peoples. Nubians, Bushmen, Zulus and many other African peoples were "exhibited" in a human zoo. The exhibitions were a huge success. The number of visitors to the Jardin doubled, reaching the million mark.

In 1931 the last anthropological exhibition was closed down and since then the Jardin has become a family-oriented leisure park, focussing on children's activities. Among the attractions are many fun-fair like attractions, like mini-rollercoasters and swing rides, as well as a collection of farm animals and birds.

A miniature road system for children operated by the Paris police was closed in 2008.


The park includes an archery range, house of mirrors, miniature-golf course, narrow-gauge train, pony ride, puppet theater, shooting galleries, a science museum (the Exploradôme), and an art museum for children (the Musée en Herbe).
