  • Our children were intrigued by the swinging skull as you walk in, they recall the talking bear and the little mouse hiding in one room - will you see it ? We visited as a family one morning - there.....  more »
  • So many cool collections and things to see, we were there for hours. Our kids loved it! Lots of oddities and interesting facts about animals and hunting. Highly recommend.  more »
  • Closed for renovations until October 2020... I should have checked their website before this morning's disappointment. Closed for renovations until October 2020  more »

  • An amazing, eclectic and perfect small museum. About 2 hours should do it. A mix of contemporary beautifully curated art with taxidermy, weapons, and paintings. Perfectly creepy at times, so not for small children. Not to be missed. Enjoy!
  • This might have been my favorite museum we went to in Paris. It's small and can easily all be seen in an hour or two, but the layout is very thoughtful, with each room dedicated to all types of exhibits and meditations on that animal and its relationship with humans throughout history. The current temporary exhibits are very cool too. The only bad thing was that we were led to believe there were taxidermy vignettes, but were unable to find them if there are.
  • What a hidden gem! Very well curated and tastefully done. They have some amazing oil paintings and antique hunting accoutrements interspersed with stunning animal displays. However, the highlight for me was their collection of antique guns. Beautifully inlaid wood, hand-wrought metal and unusual designs pack their cases at the back. It’s a great detour to get away from the crowds, and can be done in less than an hour, although I recommend perusing slowly to take it all in. All in all a great choice for something a little different.
  • Very aesthetic. Remember if you are an EU resident under 26 you can get into most of these museums for free. This includes student visas in a passport!
  • What an underrated Paris museum. If you like old artifacts and think wildlife and old weapons are cool, you will love these displays!
