Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

This museum was conceived as a private house, that of a rich collector. The row of salons and spaces arranged in a way as they were appreciated in the eighteenth century, allows to discover a very rich decor combining paintings, drawings, sculptures, tapestries, ceramics, weapons, naturalized animals, furniture, Art objects, installations, photographs, videos .


In the heart of the historic Marais district in Paris, the musée de la Chasse et de la Nature is established within two mansions of the XVII and XVIIIe centuries.

Enlarged and completely redone in 2007, it retains today more than 4000 works of ancient, modern and contemporary art.

The museum is a realization of the François Sommer Foundation.

Created by François Sommer (1904-1973) and his wife Jacqueline (1913-1993), the foundation is recognized as a public utility by decree of November 30, 1966.
It works to build a peaceful dialogue between all users of nature, hunters and non-hunters.

It wishes to disseminate in society the values of a humanistic ecology and to act with sincerity - respecting the dignity of man - for the sustainable use of natural resources.

The museographic route presents the evolution of the relationship between man and wild animal, from antiquity to the present day. Each room is organized around an animal figure (wild boar, deer and wolf, unicorn, birds of prey, dogs, avifauna ...). The Museum of Hunting and Nature therefore does not make the apology of the hunt: it places it in its historical, artistic and cultural context.
