This was a great introduction to Paris museums for my 2 girls, ages 11 and 7. It's not crowded, manageable in less than an hour, and has the 6 Lady and the Unicorn Tapestries, with benches to be able to sit with them and talk...More

The Cluny offers some excellent artifacts of the Medieval period as well as fine examples of Roman architecture - Frigidarium Baths. The highlight is the collection of the "Lady and the Unicorns" tapestries typically referred to as the "the Five Senses: the Lady and the...More

The Musee De Cluny is a very small museum that doesn't offer much and is very easy to miss from the outside, as it is seemingly tucked away from the main roadway. The outside architecture offers some pretty photo opportunities but I wouldn't advise going...More

As others noted only a portion of the museum is open. There are the Lady and Unicorn tapestries, Two small but beautiful galleries and the Roman baths. Not crowded and quite pleasant. You could easily see what is available in an hour.

Basically two fold exhibits - "The Five Senses: the Lady and the Unicorn" upstairs, and the "Frigidarium" baths in the lower level. We found the baths most interesting, but many were quite intrigued with the other exhibit.

It was a real delight entering the museum and the amazing artworks on display so steeped in history. The 'Lady and the Unicorn' tapestries are truly incredible as well as the Roman bath house and all the artefacts on display. Definitely a must to see...More

This is a small, very manageable museum in a lively neighborhood. There are some beautiful tapestries and artifacts from the middle ages. I was happy we stopped in. Nicely laid out and some very interesting pieces to view.

As we are both history buffs, we kept Musee De Cluny on our itinerary in spite of it being partially closed. Honestly, this is one we could have skipped. The museum is clean, cool, and small. The objects are interesting but most signage was in...More

This museum really is a must-see. It's put together so nicely and is easy to navigate and get through. It is a nice change of pace from the large museums that can be overwhelming. The 'Lady and the Unicorn' tapestries are beautiful and hard to...More

This was a new gem for us. Beautiful pieces and tapistries indeed. Unfortunately they are renovating a large part of the museum until 2020 so we were not allowed in the most interesting parts....

The museum does have an excellent gift shop but I don't know about the needlepoint. They did have a beautiful scarf depicting one of the tapestries but it was quite expensive. I believe they had some pillows as well.
