Le musée Fragonard France

Fans of the internationally renowned Body Worlds exhibit will be thrilled to learn about Paris’ Fragonard collection. This eerie museum features preserved corpses of wild animals and humans in a variety of dynamic poses. The name of the museum comes from an 18th century anatomy professor who stripped the skin from approximately 700 preserved cadavers before being dismissed by his horrified superiors. While the historical Fragonard was too bizarre for his time, modern visitors are fascinated by the unique look afforded by his creations. The skin has been removed from all of these specimens, and the result is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to look at the preserved muscles, bones, eyes, nerves and other internal organs. The museum also features anatomical oddities flayed open for inspection, such a sheep born with ten legs, a calf with two heads, and other interesting specimens that will engage and delight.
