Always presenting something interesting, this museum is one of my favourites in Paris. Their collection is amazing. Look for the miniature ivories, the golden rose, the woodcut triptychs, the tapestries... Often there are interesting exhibitions, but the regular collection should not be skipped! The setting...More

Quite a heavy duty visit that, I think, will not appeal to children. But for most, the Lady and the Unicorn will get you thinking.

At first, we didn't even think we would make it to this Museum with all the other Museums we had on our itinerary, but I'm so glad we didn't miss it. The building itself has so much architectural charm and there are numerous gems inside....More

This is a treasure trove if you are into the middle ages. The stars are the tapestries but there is so much else besides. Allow at least 2 hours to take it all in but some people can spend an hour looking at The Lady...More

It is a bit confusing to find your way around since stairways are closed off, as are a number of the rooms. To get to the second floor, you have to climb a set of temporary wooden stairs. It was a bit of a challenge...More

Beneath the Musee de Cluny you can still visit and see the Roman Baths which have been there for nearly two thousand years. The Museum itself is one of the oldest in Paris, the building itself dating back to the fifteenth century. It is therefore...More

Housed in the former home of the Bishop of Cluny, I have gone to this museum every time I've gone to Paris (3 so far). It's been under construction the last 2 times as they are clearly doing some major renovations. Still has a great...More

At the time of my visit, in June, it was very hot, and with the addition of the on-going reconstruction work in the museum, this made for a slightly frustrating visit which I felt I wasn't able to make the most of. There's very little...More

These tapestries are mysterious both as to origin and meaning. There are 6 of them, very large format and excellently executed. 5 are interpreted as referring to the 5 senses. So the 6th must be--some 6th sense? This is unique, very appealing and engrossing. You...More

Maybe not a major museum in the eyes of some, but worth the time, especially with a museum pass. The Medieval art and Unicorn tapestries are very interesting.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

About an hour and a half to two hours at the most. It is a cozy, small size and that gives you plenty of time to go through there entire collection and still linger while viewing the tapestries and visiting the gift store.
