Excellent exhibit, fabulous little building with a beautiful medieval styled courtyard. The tapestries were everything I expected. If you love art, and decorative art. This is not to be missed.

Learned a lot about the era from Roman times to the 1400's. We heard a wonderful choral group while there. Check for performances no their website.

The main attraction here is the lady and the unicorn tapestries... and they are beautiful. It's a cool little structure with spiral staircase. Definitely worth a stop to see the art, sculpture, stained glass, etc.

If you love old buildings or history, then you'll be impressed by this place. There's a wide variety of stuff to see, all of it impressive and well-explained. We were there when it was fairly quiet, which made it a lot more pleasant. Give yourself at least an hour to really appreciate it.

Having purchased the Paris museum pass we wanted to visit as many of the Paris museums as we could. The Musée National du Moyen Âge (National Museum of Middle Ages), formerly Musée de Cluny, is a lovely small museum located in an impressive medieval mansion. Viewing the structure itself is worth a visit! The towers, turrets, gabled windows and garden... More

The building is from back then, as is the art it contains, which includes the tapestries of The Lady and the Unicorn. And stained glass, and statues, and more. Wonderful.

If you enjoy medieval tapestries, then you must make time to visit this small museum. Perhaps the greatest works of art to be found here are the famous unicorn tapestries, all hung in their own room with plenty of room to sit and enjoy the works. The museum also has other medieval pieces of art, and many examples of stained... More

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.
