This museum is all about the history of Paris, and it's fantastic. It was easily one of my favourites in the city with great information about the Paris Commune and the French Revolution. Unfortunately, it is currently closed until 2019.

I've been here countless times and enjoyed myself each time. Excellent era-by-era explanation of Paris' history with great artifacts. Love the captured interiors of important buildings. And the museum is in a classic 17th Century mansion. Great book store.
