It all started with the Royal Garden of Medical Plants, created in the year 1635; that more forward, in the year 1793, continued with the National Museum of History and Nature. In 1932, the city of Paris provided the Museum 14 hectares near Lake Daumesnil. Professors and architects started the project of construction of the zoo; They wanted it to be a modern zoo. At last, on June 2, 1934, Paris Zoo was inaugurated.
