Wonderful medieval tapestries in comprehensible sized museum

Instead of Louvre see this! Enough to nourish your senses but not overwhelming for one visit. In addition to famous tapestries lots of other medieval items.

This is an incredible museum, that is large enough to be worth a visit but small enough that you don't leave exhausted. Great collection with incredible history.

We were walking past this museum and decided to stop in just to see the lady and unicorn tapestry. I'm so glad we did. It is one of those hidden gems. A great little museum that I didn't know anything about.

This is one of the few museums in the world that focuses on Medieval Art with such excellence, and in a region where Medieval art was at its prime. Not only is the collection well curated, the variety of statues, glasswork, tapestries, paintings, enamels, armory, etc. keep it from ever feeling like "too much of the same thing." While some...

This is a small, fairly quiet museum. I would recommend the audio guides as they help to understand what you're looking at. The Lady and the Unicorn Tapestries are the main attraction but there are lots of other interesting artefacts from Roman times up to the middle ages.

True medieval museum in authentic Gothic convent - Roman baths. Very impressive collection. Only minus was that the garden was closed.

If you don't have time in Paris just skip it, you have already seen sth similar. Only few items were worthy enough. The audioguide was misleading

Although the museum was busy I was overwhelmed by how wonderful this museum was. The building were everything is housed has a great feeling about it. The skills of the crafts people are beautifully presented. It was a real highlight of the holiday.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor 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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
