According to AOL News, a giant inflatable condom - called Condomfiere - has been put on display at the museum, as part of a campaign to increase awareness about Aids. It's the brainchild of safe-sex lobbyists CondomFly and is 120 ft in size, kept in the air with helium.
However, if you're not in Paris and have no plans to be in the near future, don't despair as the outsize prophylactic could soon be seen hovering above a town near you. In order to promote World Aids Day - which is on December 1st this year - the inflatable (which can carry three passengers and one pilot) is going to be heading off on a world tour in the near future, dispensing safe sex and sexual health advice as it goes.
Prior to this, it has plans to head to Vienna in June for the 18th International Aids Conference, so if you've got a holiday planned in this city, keep your eyes peeled and your camera at the ready.
And campaigners CondomFly noted that the balloon - which is almost 40 m high and can be seen more than 40 miles away - will be travelling around for 500 days, "bringing a message of hope" to Aids sufferers worldwide.
