(closed for renovations) - Fancy a walk well off the beaten track in the French capital? This tour will show you the underside of Paris from Ancient times through to the era of Belgrand, the 19th-century engineer who designed the sewer system in its...more
The Sewer museum is closed until the Spring. I was aware of this before coming to Paris but thought it was worth double checking. We walked by there this afternoon. Would have been a fun thing to see. Oh Well, something for next time. Im...More
I don't know what I expected from this place but bare minimum I was looking forward to just walking around the tunnels. Let me tell you, you will get SO mush more! When you first go down you just walk through a few tunnels with...More
I really enjoyed it. Once you get over the smell, the stories of people escaping through the sewers and how they went about cleaning them are quite amusing. It is something different and well worth a visit.
I wanted to make this stop on our trip to Paris because we were traveling with teenage boys and I thought they would like it. I read all about it and we got all the way there. It closed this summer for renovations. Until 2019....More
I have visited Les Egouts in the past and it is certainly a very interesting visit. My grandson was interested to see what it was all about and I promised to take him. I checked the tourist information and we planned our visit.
When wanting to visit this museum I thought it would be an area with the old sewers- with information about the history of the sewers. The beginning of the museum was like I thought, but afterwards, you go in the real sewers, the water is...More

Definitely a unique experience. Worthwhile stop and you do learn quite a bit as you walk through. Later that day I saw a sewer worker about to descend through a manhole wearing the outfit I had seen in the museum and I had more respect...More
It does smell, but it is a cool and relatively inexpensive stop for something of fun the beaten path. To get more out of it, you do have to stop and read quite a few placards, which may not be interesting for young kids. They...More
Not too many cities around the world turn the sewers into a tourist attraction, but then no other cities have a literary masterpiece set in them. Over the course of an hour or two you can learn the history of wastewater infrastructure in Paris whilst...More

No, no one got sick. It’s not much worse than a portapotty! Mostly a strong musky ammonia smell.
The tunnels are cool, great for kids maybe 4th grade and up. The history and infrastructure is the draw for adults.
