Last December, walking around the Marais district, in Paris, I passed by the door of the Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature, which I had a vague idea of having seen some pictures of on a magazine. As I wasn’t that busy, I decided to go in straight away and found one of the most well done museums I ever seen. To put in one sentence, it is what a museum should be: entertaining, pedagogical, surprising and with great quality of the pieces exhibited.
A good collection of arms and hunting related objects, a significant group of paintings by painters such as Cranach, Rubens, Brueghel or Desportes, some wonderful taxidermy pieces, punctuated with appropriate (commissioned) pieces of contemporary art. All beautifully displayed and put in context by informative cabinets.
