    We went to visit the Deyrolles Museum in Paris. I learned the history and geography on boards hanging on the wall of my class. Deyrolles has been the provider of education at the end of the 19th century. There are many stuffed animals that seem alive. The butterfly collection is sumptuous. The colors are vivid: a true Rainbow. You can buy for 5 euros, the small magnets of animals.

    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.

    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.

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.
