ASSOCIATION OF FRIENDS
THE MUSEUM OF HUNTING AND
NATURE AND FOUNDATION
Created by François Sommer (1904-1973) and his wife Jacqueline (1913-1993), the foundation is recognized by a public decree of 30 November 1966.
It works to build a peaceful dialogue between all users of nature, hunters and non-hunters.
It wishes to spread the values of a humanist ecology in society and to act with sincerity - with respect for the dignity of man - for the sustainable use of natural resources.
THE MANY BENEFITS
The members of the association are kept informed of the cultural program of the Museum of Hunting and Nature, have free access to the museum and its temporary exhibitions as well as their inaugurations and guided tours. They can attend all the cultural activities offered every Wednesday at 19h30 (concerts, conferences, performances, screenings, shows ... within the limits of available places) and can reserve a table, or simply have a drink, at the Club de la Hunting and Nature at the end of these evenings. They benefit from privileged conditions on the publications of the museum.
