  • Such a Parian shop-filled with incredible sights both up and downstairs. It's like a museum and you get purchase the most unique items to bring home for unforgettable keepsakes (all price points). Wit...  more »
  • Deyrolle is a beautiful store, but past the spectacular side, it turns out especially since it's a store that sells expensive (very expensive), so for a clientele classy, specimens of which some are taken from nature directly (I think especially in insects!). Certainly, most of the mammals died (and have lived all their lives) in captivity. It is not less than taxidermy, as fur coats), a fashion, a taste that we'd like to see disappear bourgeois salons. Because how to support this activity at the time where species are disappearing by hundreds? By the thousands? Or over-fishing, hunting cause immeasurable losses to the animal diversity? By erecting the animal in beautiful object? It's thin. And scientific, hardly convincing bail. Do we really have to give up all sense of responsibility in the face of a pretty front? Our consumerism is so blind? The art of the cabinets of curiosity is an art of the past, a nostalgic aristocrat of hunting and domination of nature art. Clearly an age: our scientists continually tell us! Us to become aware.

  • Loved this place! Pop up to the second floor for a different view of Paris. Incredibly fascinating (sometimes frightening if you're scared of bugs!) and really unique! I have a soft spot for hunting for sport, I'm not sure the fate of these animals, but I told myself all of them died of natural causes.
  • Unique shop absolutely worth a visit ! The kids love it and adults as well
  • Beautiful, entrancing. I'd heard of Deyrolle but thought I wouldn't be interested in taxidermy. Lured by the ground floor store, which is more of an upscale gardening store, the upper floor is a wonder where both the displays and the process of preserving the natural world are presented.
  • Went on the suggestion of a friend. What an interesting store. It's worth a visit. (If taxidermy weirds you out, this is not the store for you.)
  • Go upstairs for an amazing (and sometimes sad) world of exotic taxidermy and insect collections. Real art pieces along with aging safari and farm collections and even a mummified human head. This is a shop like very few in the world, one of the closest things to a Harry Potter Diagonally experience in the real world.
