There must be other museums around the world which are like this, but I am struggling to think of one that I have been to. In the main, this is a dream if you are a fan of taxidermy animals. The collection is huge, varied...More

The museum is nothing fancy, but it has a nice collection of taxidermied animals alongside other exhibits on natural history. It's mostly labeled in French, but it still provides an interesting place to explore in Lille. We went on a Sunday when it was free...More

Visited whilst in Lille at the weekend, wasn't really expecting to see hundreds (potentially into the thousands) of stuffed animals in display cabinets! A very small museum, a few skeletons, other exhibits but 90% stuffed animals... all a bit strange! Wouldn't go back, you couldn't...More

Not a big museum by any means but very interesting. It has an extraordinary number of stuffed birds in numerous display cabinets. Not that I'm a fan of presenting animals in this way but these were done mostly in the 19th century when attitudes to...More
