Museum of the Chase and Nature

In the Marais there is the newly refurbished museum of the chase, or of hunting, devoted to those who ride horses in red jackets and chase after foxes, as well as many stuffed animals and some interesting displays. The building itself is breath taking.

Wonderful chandeliers made of metal hung everywhere and many other metal touches were seen.

One little dark room was devoted to the owl and the entire ceiling was covered in feathers and the heads of owls.

I think these were metal replicas of deer horns hung from the ceiling.

A long room full of stuffed animals and heads.

  1. I especially love that first photo of the chandelier; quite something. Imagine an entire museum devoted to hunting! I have a nice little book called Little-Known Museums In and Around Paris, by Rachel Kaplan (pub. Abrams) that you would probably find useful.
