ok to pop into in the old city but not too much to see. I found the anti alcohol posters the most surprising and interesting

If one is in La Cite, then this small museum giving an insight into a pre-war French school is well worth a visit.

My daughter had been here before and was very keen to show us the museum. Unfortunately a rather imposing guide prevented us from being able to explore the museum properly.

A nice distraction and escape from the sun and crowds. Entry fare reasonable, although there isn't much to keep you detained for long. Allow an hour. But definitely a novel place - check it out if in the Cité with a few euros and a bit of time to spare.

As the one time headteacher of a UK village school, this little museum made for a fascinating visit. My wife and I, both teachers, really enjoyed this reconstruction of French schooling at the end of the nineteenth century. Interestingly, there are several French schools preserved as museums. In the UK they are still working schools!

Well worth paying the small entrance fee to see the School Museum plus gift shop located within the Medieval City of Carcassonne. Fascinating facts some lovely souvenirs to purchase! Would recommend!
