    I was afraid that the hunting theme too far but infact it is soft. The premises are beautiful. It is a beautifully decorated former mansion. The collections are superb and the staff is very welcoming. The stuffed animals are amazing, and the variety of works is remarkable. Paintings, weapons, dishes, pictures, stuffed animals, statues, engravings... ok with young children.

    A dream place where there is always some interesting temporary exhibitions. The permanent collection beautifully highlighted with paintings, furniture and objects of high quality around the nature and hunting. Staff exceptional friendly which is not always the case in museums unfortunately.

    Unusual Museum in a mansion the swamp, stuffed animals, hunting and tables. Rooms are very nice, so ask them to make the children discover the "secrets" of the Museum!

    A hidden gem, with a quirky and unexpected collection that just cries out for selfies and other photos! Our family really enjoyed it as we didn't have any expectations and were bowled over by the odd items on show. English explanations on cards. Recommended.

    A curious compilation or contemporary art and taxidermy. A must see for all wanting to have a alternative view in Paris. Don't forget to check if there are any special events on thier site (films, conferences)

    I was a little skeptical about going to this museum but the place was pretty awesome and so were the helpful staff!

    Awesome, well worth finding. Not what you expect but a well curated, eclectic mix. Seems like they are trying to make a statement, but judge for yourself.

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.
