  • 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.

  • I can't post photos because they are extremely strict about NO PHOTOS. There is a huge variety of animals here, ranging from tiny beetles and butterflies up to lions and tigers. Most things are for sale, so it is sort of half-museum and half-Shop. There are also a lot of interesting books. This is a great place to so if you are a collector or looking for a very unusual gift, but also great to just look around. There isn't a ton of information about the displays Like you would get in a normal museum, but they did have the names of all the creatures.
  • Firstly, only go if 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.
  • Very beautiful animals inside all on the second floor and definitely recommend for anyone interested in taxidermy.
  • Head upstairs to the bizarre taxidermy shop, not much happening downstairs. All kinds of stuffed animals, corals, shells and insects to look at. Some great books too. Fascinating and strange.
  • "A musuem without ticket", lot of animals ! A beautiful place !
