In the prestigious setting of the private mansions of Guénégaud (17th century) and Mongelas (18th century), sheltered from the city's uproar, the Museum of Hunting and Nature "exposes" the relationship between man and animals through the ages, from antiquity to the present day, drawing on the exceptional collections of ancient, modern and contemporary art collected by the founders and constantly expanded over almost half a century.

Whether you are an amateur or simply curious, you can only be seduced by the beauty of the premises and the richness of the collections. Naturalized animals, weapons, imprint casts, paintings by Lucas Cranach, Jan Fabre or Brueghel, bronzes, draperies…all converse in an original museography to the delight of young and old alike!

The museum also offers a programme of 3 to 4 four annual temporary exhibitions that highlight the permanent collections, particularly with the collaboration of contemporary artists.

Discover the Carnavalet museum which tells you the great History of Paris and its inhabitants. An exceptional collection of works!
