Terrific Taxidermy

The word “offbeat” doesn’t come close to describing this bizarre Parisian locale that dates back to 1831. Step through the doorway and you’ll be greeted by the staring glass eyes of hundreds of taxidermied animals. A fascinating array of deceased beasts, from butterflies to African big game, is on postmortem display here. Somewhat unsurprisingly, this was a favorite spot for Parisian surrealists (like Salvador Dalí and Luis Buñuel) looking for inspiration during the first half of the 20th century. Books, educational materials, and intriguing knick-knacks can be purchased at Deyrolle’s boutique.
