This museum is in a former mansion in the Marais. I heard about it on a walking tour and decided to visit the next day. Such a bizarre place! I really enjoyed it though. There was no crowd so it felt like I had the place all to myself. I only gave it a rating of 4 because there wasn't... More

This museum has an unexpected mix of old and modern exhibitions so the feeling is bizarre and very interesting at the end because you enjoy the visit when you first thought it was not for you. I went to see some Baselitz painting and discovered a museum of his time.

This museum takes a very contemporary approach to examine our relationships with animals. It perfectly combines historical paintings and artefacts with contemporary art and taxidermy. Housed in a historical house each room, anti-chamber and gallery is themed, it's like walking through an immersive instillation.

The reviews are right - this is an unexpected gem in the heart of the Marais. Beautifully curated and the best staff and ushers of any museum we visited in Paris. One usher took our 2 children aside and "secretly" showed them a "mouse hole" where the resident mouse lived. Delightful. Only takes an hour to navigate the the museum... More

Small museum in an 18th century mansion, collection is a mixture of taxidermy, hunting weapons and contemporary art, all mixed together. It is much more interesting and fun than it is possible to describe, exhibits are well designed and playful. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It takes at least an hour to visit.

This is basically a hunting museum. The collection of taxidermied animals is incredible. Some of the hunting rifles are works of art. NBut what makes it unusual is the art that is mixed in with the other displays. Even the lighting fixtures are noteworthy. We've seen a lot of museums and this one stands out.

This small museum takes about an hour and a half to visit, it contains taxidermy, paintings, antique guns and all things to do with hunting. This seems a strange museum to visit in this day and age as most of the exhibits would be thought to be politically incorrect, however the curation of the museum plus the amazing staff make... More

This is a Real gem. I am not into massive museums, I get bored after about an hour, so for me smaller more anonymiseret museums are great. However these smaller museums are often VERY traditional and "dusty" because of the limiter ressources. But this place is the opposite.... And when the subjekt is Nature you could have feared row after... More

Some friends told us about this museum and it didn't disappoint. It has curated material without taking a strong political position, but allowing the visitor to question and investigate. There is a superb collection of hunting rifles, and every imaginable piece of hunting ephemera, mixed in with witty and artistic additions that makes this museum one of the best secret... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
