  • for lovers of fresh air and animals, the Museum is a real treat. No need to be Hunter to enjoy the place and the show. do not miss the big bear fleece Yes the Panther, or conferences of the auditorium

  • A magnificent mansion, a magical atmosphere even though it knows nothing about hunting, even if we don't like it. All details are cared for. There are some great achievements, with feathers, bones, trophies, guns, cabinets of curiosity. And children who listen to stories sitting in circles. Nice place!

  • Hidden gem of Paris's museum offerings. An eclectic break from paintings and sculptures.
  • A small and intimate museum and beautifully curated- This museum has a wonderful mixture of historic pieces and contemporary art that invokes a feeling of a Victorian curiosity cabinet.
  • If you have had enough of fine art galleries this may interest you. Great sculpture, paintings and hunting trophies focused on the natural world and specifically man's historic interaction in the form of hunting and animal domestication.
  • One of my favorite "eclectic" museums in Paris! Great collection of animal art, from Old Masters through to contemporary artists. Thoughtfully curated exhibitions, conferences, workshops and events that center on themes of man and nature. Housed in two beautiful 17th Century "hôtels particuliers" (townhouses), some stuffed animals as well, and an impressive collection of hunting rifles and other paraphernalia. Admission is free on the first Sunday of every month. Open late on Wednesdays. Friendly guards is a plus!
  • More like an art museum built around the hunting and nature themes. Full of details : pay attention ! Plan between 2 and 3 hours to see and read everything in details. Plan around an hour, an hor and a half if you don't read a thing. The price is very reasonable for the quality of the museum. Very friendly staff. Out of the beaten path, so there is no queue and you will be comfortable in the museum (instead of constantly dodging people). If you are tired of traditional or jam-packed museums, do this one absolutely !
