  • 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.
