Behind the grand facade of Hotel de Guénégaud, one of the most exciting museum of Paris is hosted in a mid-17th century building designed by the great architect François Mansart. After 2 years of work, it is a completely redesigned space that artistically bridges the gap between past and present. Fans of Deyrolle and Jules Verreaux will rush to the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature’s stuffed cornucopia of taxidermy, fine art and antique firearms. Inside, the museum’s silk brocade walls, traditional trophies and incredible paintings coexist harmoniously (with a lot of humour) with hidden contemporary art works (by artists such as Jan Fabre, Gelitin or Laure Tixier…) that you will be amused to discover. Here, it is all about the ancient relationship between humans and nature, it’s all about how we feared, hunted, tamed and often mythologized “beasts”. It’s about nature and art.
