Fodor's Review

This quirky museum is in the enormous former St. Augustus Church, and it contains the world's largest collection of fishhooks, some 500 stuffed animals (including a 6½-foot-tall North American grizzly bear), a 12,000-year-old skeleton of a deer found in Ireland, and a valuable collection of hunting weapons. You'll even find the mythical Wolpertinger, the Bavarian equivalent of the jackalope. The museum also sells fine hunting equipment, from knives and rifles to

sturdy clothing.

"Ladies want to shop, Guys must go here"

The bronze statuary in front says it all, a large wild boar and a catfish you can put your head into. Inside you will find models and props and examples, oh my ! Guy stuff, and they will know what I mean. My favorite painting is of an ancient hunting ground. The gentry have all the game flushed out of the forrest and into a water way shooting gallery. What survives that ( litle ) is attacked my others will less skill. What a hoot. The local

butcher shop must have started the custom. I don't remember seeing servents bringing refreshments to the gentry. But they must have been there. BTW wehre have all the game animals gone ? The Dutches Museum for the hunter and fisherman in Germany. Well worth the time. Only expensive because the ladies will spend lots while you are in there. Some stairs. Enjoy
