The exhibits at Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature celebrate the relationship between humans and the natural environment through hunting. This museum has been characterized by Smithsonian magazine as "rewarding and inventive." One of the rooms in this strange, quirky museum has a ceiling covered in owl feathers. Each room is given its own name, such as Room of the Boar and Cabinet of the Wolf. You'll be able to examine dozens of the weapons, hunting products, and artwork.

A room in which uninteresting trophies are piled up. A space in which you have to draw drawers without presentation in which are documents that cannot be appreciated for lack of light. You leave without knowing what it's like to hunt for a running dog or a stop dog. No place is made to the knights of the moon who are the closest hunters to nature... Big disappointment!
An amazing, eclectic and perfect small museum. About 2 hours should do it. A mix of contemporary beautifully curated art with taxidermy, weapons, and paintings. Perfectly creepy at times, so not for small children. Not to be missed. Enjoy!
This might have been my favorite museum we went to in Paris. It's small and can easily all be seen in an hour or two, but the layout is very thoughtful, with each room dedicated to all types of exhibits and meditations on that animal and its relationship with humans throughout history. The current temporary exhibits are very cool too. The only bad thing was that we were led to believe there were taxidermy vignettes, but were unable to find them if there are.
