We wandered around the outside of the museum trying to find the entrance...someone finally pointed out a tiny sign stating that the museum is currently closed for renovation. Just an FYI for other travellers!

Musee du Moyen Age was a delightful departure. It was an excellent well run, well laid out museum. A lot less crowded more enjoyable. The site itself is a living piece of the past. Built on and around a 3rd century Roman bath house. The...More

We were fortunate enough to visit while the Lady and the Unicorn were in full display in November, and those alone were worth a visit. Strange courtyard, very old building, just a ton of archaeological artifacts inside. If you CAN time a visit with the...More

Off the regular tourist list of places to see, this is a wonderful little museum. Incredible history associated with the building itself and a magnificent collection. Highly recommend a visit.

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
