Located in the Marais district, the beautiful Hôtel de Guenegaud, built by François Mansard in 1654, now houses the Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature (Museum of Hunting and Nature). There is a variety of objects representing cynegetic art: from paintings to stuffed animals and weapons. On the first floor, three rooms are dedicated to a large collection of paintings from the 18th and 19th Century, such as hunting pictures by Desportes, Oudry, Chardinand and a sketch by Rembrandt. The Arms room presents an amazing and impressive collection of weapons from the 16th to the 19th Century. In the last rooms, discover animals very far away from their natural habitat: moose, panthers, polar bears, and many more.
