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

Stumbled upon this beautiful museum and was amazed at the gorgeous tapestries and the architecture dating from the Romans.. Worth a journey.. It was quiet as well.

While the tapestries are incredible (and they let you get up close to see the details) the rest of the museum is equally interesting. There aren't the crowds of the other museums in Paris. The area around the museum is great for wandering. The 8 euro fee is well worth the money. Limited English translations but they do have placards... More

No queues, we were using Paris museum pass, so we didn't wait for a ticket also. Interesting mixture between Middle centuries and the Ancient times. Beautiful garden, were you can rest.

This museum is also one of my favorite, the renaissance period seems so delicate...the tapestry of the unicorn is just amazing. though they are remodeling the yard now, do not miss the well.

This was not first on our list, but it was recommended by Another Paris. We are glad we went. The thermal bath ruins are very interesting, but the tapestries of the Girl and the Unicorn are superb. Worth going to; there are also many other interesting objets d'art to see. No cafe on site but there is a book and... More
