I've been to a few special expos here, always on the theme of something that is special in France, history, architecture, development. Always very well organized and presented. The permanent collection of models of important French buildings is stunning.

Casts of French cathedral doors and other details are displayed stunningly. To be able to view the medieval statuary up close is a huge treat. It shows that the sculptors were true artists, and not the clumsy craftsmen that much of medieval statuary suggests. When...More

Located in the Palais Chaillot is the French architectural heritage museum that showcases its development through the ages. The galleries des Moulages houses models of great French cathedrals and is a very interesting experience.

The ground floor holds over 300 castings, most life-size, of architectural treasures from all over France, with an emphasis on fabulous, flamboyant gothic. I had a ''Paris Pass'' which included entry otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered, Believe me, it is terrific and you will...More

I very much enjoyed this. The quality and attention to detail is impressive. This clearly shows the huge amount of work the French have put into their national heritage. The 3D cut models of the buildings were especially interesting. There are many life-size models of...More

This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
