  • You can see a stuffed animal in a Japan. And, considering... Are they just lined up? And, I imagine, but it is truly France the goodness of the aesthetic sense overflows. Please take a leisurely tour.

  • Opposed to hunting, I would not have chosen to visit this Museum, but I was advised warmly, so I thought to myself: why not? The building, the furniture unrolling to themselves the visit. In addition there are plenty of stuffed animals, unusual objects and a little humor. This venerable Museum does not take itself seriously and is right. For proof, the temporary exhibition that leaves carte blanche to the Romanian artist Mircea Cantor. Elements of Romanian folklore and hunting in the Carpathians are cleverly mingled with the Museum's exhibits. Gravity rubs shoulders with derision. Other exhibits should follow.

  • 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.
