This private museum of hunting and nature, located in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris, is Steve and Jill’s son, Carter’s favorite museum – and for good reason…

Although the idea of a hunting museum may seem barbaric, we assure you this museum is anything but. It artfully explores the relationship between man and beast, and the role animals have played in man’s life.

Each room of the museum is dedicated to a different animal; giving us each the opportunity to pick a favorite. This makes for a fun and memorable family outing indeed!

We look forward to sharing many more of our family’s much-loved museums through our Museum Monday posts, and hopefully inspire you to visit – or even re-visit – some of our favorite places.

Have an artful day; and please share any of your favorite museums with us!
