I loved, loved, loved this museum! I'm fascinated by taxidermy AND by art, and in this museum both come together beautifully. The building in itself is already a gorgeous villa. And then the collection of taxidermy, hunting parafernalia and classic and modern art: intriguing and...More

Hard to describe what is in store for you if you visit--a ceiling made with owl feathers and faces, a snake-like creation made of feathers, a diorama with two gorillas protecting a table supported by sea horses and with an open torso (human?) as decoration,...More

This is significant, as hunting is an important marker of the aristocracy and landed gentry, so these artistic representations...More

An odd museum-- one many taxi drivers have never heard of-- but worth a visit you have a couple hours spare. The day we were there the air conditioning wasn’t working so it was very unpleasant. I appreciated the paintings, porcelain and sculpture but the...More
