Once a leading center of taxidermy, this shop dates back to 1831 and is not to be missed. Revived, renewed, and rebuilt after a devastating fire, the shop in the Saint Germain district is still a fascinating visit for anyone interested in animals and ecology. The cabinet of curiosities sells various stuffed animals, birds, and insects, though all animals have died of natural causes, so there's no need to feel uneasy. Frequently used as the backdrop for photo shoots and films, Deyrolle is a Parisian institution unlike any other, and open for free to the public.
