Musée Fragonard d'Alfort

Venue Info

Located at the end of Métro Line 8, near Maison d’Alfort, this museum is actually part of Paris’ veterinary school. The main reason to visit: the famous écorchés. Something akin to the modern-day “Bodies” exhibit, these once-living specimens date from 250 years ago: horses, monkeys, adult humans, and even fetuses have been flayed and preserved. Originally intended for study, they nowadays exist for your morbid enjoyment. The seven euro entry comes with an audio guide in both French and English.
