Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature:  a gorgeous museum, situated in a 17th century hôtel in the Marais, devoted entirely to hunting. 

I’m really enjoying exploring the smaller (and more random) museums before I leave this city. Because, if you’ve seen the impressionists at Orsay once, you’ve seen ‘em a hundred times… (KIDDING)

Also, taxidermy is really neat. Also, also, that polar bear is from Alaska and for some reason it made me feel proud to know there was an American bear in this museum.

Mr. Youngaitis said much of his business was trophy work: hunters coming in with small game or deer heads to mount, or bears to make into rugs.

Other customers are bereaved pet owners who want their dog or cat or hamster or turtle stuffed for posterity. “I’m almost like a funeral director sometimes, when pet owners come in crying,” he said. “I have to help them with their grief.”
