I went to this small museum as it was close to the apartment we were staying in. I was looking forward to the medieval art......however, what I did not know until I got there was that this is the museum that has the famous tapestry of The Lady and the Unicorn. Even some decades after my lone art history class... More

For a lover of history and antiquities, this is a must see. The cavernous Roman baths are enthralling in their own right, but the collection is so beautiful and varied that it demands attention and time. If you see enough of the medieval statuary, including the heads of the kings that were struck off the portals of Notre Dame by... More

This is a fantastic museum and is filled with all kinds of medieval religious artifacts. You need about 2 hours to take it all in, but the time is well worth the visit. There are ivory carvings, stained glass, an old Roman temple, 7th century crosses, chalices, and crosiers. There are also a number of wooden triptychs. You can also... More

If you head straight up to the room with the six "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries, those powerful, grabbing, and beautiful tapestries alone are worth the visit. Additionally, over the past 30 years or so, the site has been expanded to incorporate historic construction and some art pieces ranging from the oman public bath to church and house walls, which...

The remains of the Roman baths were remarkable. Given my love of medieval art, I couldn't miss this museum. I sat for a long time in front of the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries saw too many other beautiful things to count. Well worth a trip.

As others have said, the size and scale make this immensely "do able" - particularly after the overwhelming nature of some other wonderful museums in Paris. It is on the Museum Pass, but there was no line anyway We initially chose it because for Harry Potter fans, my daughter pointed out that the headstone of the mysterious Nicholas Flamel is... More

We visited this Museum with our 10 and 12 year old and would have to say that it is everyone's favourite in Europe so far. The British Museum was just so large that it was too daunting and it was so terribly crowded. Musee Clunes was not at all crowded and it was a pleasure to move through this collection... More

Love this museum! The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries are wonderful. This is a very manageable museum not at all overwhelming . Found some lovely gifts for my granddaughter in the museum shop which was a bonus.

Went over Christmas holiday and had to wait about 10 minutes outside. It has an amazing collection of Medieval art. Take the time to look and read about the tapestries of the Lady and the Unicorn, simply breathtaking. The stain glass windows perfectly curated are beautiful! It has jewelry, garments, sculptures, paintings and an incredible history. Would love to go... More
