Musee Requien Reviews
Another free attraction. Your basic rocks, bones and fossils museum of the Provence area, but presented in a very organized fashion through time - with English explanations. Great T-Rex skull ! more »

Interesting and full of finds, it is a pleasant stop for families and young people.
For non French speakers, there wasn’t so much to learn. There are many other nice things to see in Avignon.
Fun museum for family. Quite an old fashioned display, with a somewhat overwhelming volume of stuffed extinct fauna, but some nice touches included in the information, and even some local traditional poetry thrown in.
