Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

Lions and tigers and bears…oh my, this museum has everything for the aspiring naturalist. Examining the relationship of human and animal throughout history, original displays of classic and contemporary art mingle with taxidermic animals, rifle collections, and archives in a 17th-century mansion. Visitors, especially kids, will love opening the wooden drawers to find contents like scat and paw-print samples, or hunting down a trompe l’oeil mousehole. Founded by the François Sommer Foundation, the museum is committed to promoting the global discussion about our environment. The result is a compelling selection of temporary exhibitions, conferences, and events that change with the seasons.

Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

“Quirky, astonishing, strange and eclectic.” The three-floor Museum of Hunting and Nature is a private museum with exhibits focus on the relationship between humans and the natural environment through the traditions and practices of hunting. Walking through each room, you will see the most curated artistic representations of wildlife and hunting: paintings and prints on velvet walls in Salon of the Dogs room, ceiling covered in owl feathers in a room called The Night by Diana by contemporary Belgian artist Jan Fabre, previously known for decorating the ceiling of the Royal Palace in Brussels with more than a million and a half beetle wing cases. Each room makes you wow and is a cabinet of curiosities.

Make sure to go early in the afternoon as long line starts to form after 3PM.
