The Cluny is one of my all-time favourite museums, with treasures tucked into every corner of its many rooms -- and the architecture and gardens are just as delightful, so be sure to explore them as well.

The French certainly know how to display and feature their art to show the true beauty of each piece. The lighting and arrangement of the artifacts absolutely took my breathe away ! Magnificent and well worth many more visits.

A lovely, small museum with the unicorn tapestries. It is a bit difficult to find, but was worth the effort.

This is one of the best, most engaging museums I've been to in a long time. It has a beautiful collection of Middle ages art, clothing, tapestries and objects. It's much more about high-life in the middle ages, and less about war or battles. Their specimens are really wonderful, beautifully preserved too. The roman baths are a great bonus as... More

If you like Medieval stuff, this is the place for you. It has very old religious relics, swords, alters, and the tapestries are world famous! The tapestries alone are well worth the visit and all of the other stuff is just a bonus. We had a wonderful visit.

This fantastic museum has great exhibits from the middle ages including Roman ruins, and the best part was absolutely no line! It is simply a walk across the river from Notre Dame. A handy place to purchase your Museum Pass; brilliant.

The ancient archeologic ruins seen from the street when we walked the Latin Quarter attracted me to this museum. While I wasn't that crazy about all the art in here, I did enjoy the tapestries of the lady and the unicorn (fascinating) and the ruins and ancient baths. Check out the archeological museum in front of Notre Dame if you... More

This museum was a nice surprise and not as busy as the more popular ones. Able to get up front and personal with all the items and really get a feel for this ancient building. Was one of my little favourites. If you get the Museum pass or the Paris pass I would make this a must see if you... More

Located within a short walk from the Metro [Cluny/Sorbonne] the collection has been in the process of being reinstalled but the Museum itself has not been renovated with the result that the galleries are a bit warm and stuffy and the lack of carpeting is somewhat hard on one's feet. The collection covers Christian art from the early period (in... More

Even if you are not a fan of the Middle Ages, this is an amazing place. I suppose it is one of the more obscure museums (it is on the Museum Pass), but there were NO crowds the morning I went. I was there when it opened and had a wonderful time looking at art, utensils, tapestries and the simple... More
