  • My daughter and I decided to visit different places during our brief Paris getaway and Deyrolle that we did not know was a. Although being not passionate about taxidermy we could enjoy the quality and finesse of the work done in this House that exists since the 1830s and is located rue du Bac since 1876 more or less. The entry doesn't mine, stuck between two other shops, but animals arranged in large rooms all have natural air, as if they were in their usual environment. We saw a few people who bought that a bird, a beautiful blue butterfly, for Christmas, no doubt, but most of the people were just like us, they visited a Museum! The little lama looked so soft that it has been difficult not stroking, and giraffe dominated the world around her. Speaking with a person who was "treating" a little damaged animals I learned that all of these animals were donated by zoos to their death or by people who had found them dead. What a great way to give back a 2nd life to these beautiful animals and birds! I was surprised to see that my Parisian friends to had not heard. It is a jewel to be discovered!

  • After buying a Peacock in a private home we picked up information and possibly the chemicals into this renowned institution. We were not disappointed. We were welcomed by specialists who are not greedy in tips. Too bad they don't sell no household products. A visit even if you do not buy a lion or a giraffe. There is something for every price (a butterfly for a few dozen euros). And do not hesitate to bring you kids they will be amazed as it has nothing to do with a museum because you can walk between the cats and parrots (with caution and without touching recess)

  • I am Bewitched. What wonderful, worthy of a museum shop. The animals are beautiful. Some items are affordable. The vendors are friendly. Feel free to enter.

  • Firstly, only go if you like it intrigues you. If the idea of seeing taxidermied animals makes you want to vomit, give this a miss. Otherwise, the way they have arranged everything is spectacular. I'm not a great fan of taxidermy however this place is worth a look in. Make sure you go upstairs, as there is almost nothing downstairs.
  • This place is a must see! It is a store, but arranged in a museum-like display of the most unusual animal-type objects. You will only know when you are there, definitely worth a visit!
  • Perfect place for those in love with an 19th century curiosity cabinet atmosphere. Even if you don't buy anything is still nice to visit it, it's worth it.
  • Excellent place and shop it's like a museum , you have to visit if you go to Paris
  • Really cool shop! If you are in the area you must visit it!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
