The Botanical Garden also known as "New Botanical Garden", is part of the museum complex of the Museum of Natural Sciences.

Today's Botanical Garden is heir to a long tradition of gardens designed for studying, maintaining and preserving plant species. It specialises in showcasing the biodiversity of Mediterranean flora. It enables dozens of species found in all the city's gardens to be put in their proper geographical context. These are plants that have adapted perfectly to temperate climates despite being native to other shores.

To fit in with modern times and meet scientific and sustainability criteria, the Botanical Garden has moved on from collecting exotic plants and botanical rarities – an activity typical of the natural science museums of the 18th and 19th centuries – and adopted a more scientific approach that follows sustainability criteria.
