The Museum of Vampires is a small private collection, located in a private house and visiting it is only possible by appointment. It is located in Les Lilas, on the outskirts of Paris – a 15 minutes subway ride to Port-de-Lilas station. Musée des Vampires is dedicated entirely to vampires and their place in folklore and modern culture.
The entrance to the museum is located in a small courtyard in the back of the building. The courtyard is decorated with plastic bats and real human remains. The main hall of a relatively cramped, but still very cozy. The collection consists of more than a thousand exhibits: books, paintings, posters, movies, a mummified cat , a vampire killing kit, Hammer house collectible items and Dracula toys– everything that deserves the attention of any horror movie fan.
The founder of the Museum of Vampires is Jacques Sirgent, who is a specialist in dark folklore and esoteric knowledge. He's been gathering rare texts and grimoires for a very long time, which also made him a brilliant storyteller and a guide to his museum.
After exploring the museum and hearing the stories of Jacques Sirgent, you will be amazed by the dark tales of Paris, the stories of witchcraft and vampiric rituals that took place at Parisian cemeteries, and how the superstitions still live on.
