THE Palais de la Dècouverte, which represents a great effort of popularization on the part of French science, is an attempt, and a very successful attempt, to parallel the South Kensington Science Museum and the Deutsches Museum. In the biological section, for example, there are exhibits of evolution phenomena, embryology, tissue-culture, etc., and continuous demonstrations of such experiments as the Berger rhythm. All the most modern devices such as neon lighting and automatic switching are used to give life to the exhibits and diagrams.
