With so many rare and beautiful creatures flapping their wings around town, there's some poetic justice in the fact that St. Tropez has one of the best butterfly museums in the world. The collection belonged to the entomologist son of photographer J.H. Lartigue, and occupies his old Provençal-style house. Handsomely displayed under glass, it includes all 250 varieties of butterflies found in France. Harmlessly eccentric and surprisingly interesting.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 2:30 to 6 pm, April through November, or by appointment.
