Easy, cheap, one hour, highly informative, self-guided tour of the development of the Paris sewer system. Small gift shop at the end. Consider it a hands on tour, a bit smelly, great for kids to run the tunnels, lots of history, engineering, and anecdotes. Easy...More

The Paris Sewer Museum is not your ordinary tourist tour. There is much interesting information and you really are inside the sewers while visiting the museum. You can see the exhibits in an hour. This was one of those museums the Paris Museum Pass allowed...More

The sewers of Paris have been featured in Victor Hugo's 'Les Misérables' and Gaston Leroux's 'Phantom of the Opera,' so it seems only fitting that visitors to Paris can "experience" this part of the City of Light if they are so inclined. The admission is...More

If you are having trouble finding this venue, it is immediately opposite Princess Diana's memorial, simply cross the bridge and you are there. It is a real education to see the actual working sewer system and its history. The smell is not all that bad...More

Interesting, but not quirky cool that I inferred from the website. My traveling companion was little disappointed that all of the signage was in French. The museum is in an actual working sewer, so it smells. But it's interesting - especially some of the historical...More

Located at Pont de L’Alma, halfway between Eiffel Tower and Alexander III Bridge, so 10 minutes walk either way. There is a kiosk on the corner of the bridge that looks like a news stand. Buy tickets here at €4.40 each and gain access underground...More

This museum can be seen in about one hour, however, I am pretty sure we cut the visit in half due to the overpowering smell. It was hot and almost empty and my husband was almost running ahead of us, in a big rush. However,...More

Great little museum, very reasonable entry price (4.50 euros I think) and interesting historical and modern day perspectives of Paris sewage system. Try to coincide with a free tour (if you speak French) it was excellent and informative. Yes it smells a little but what...More

We have been to Paris before and have ticked the big items off, so why not go underground to a very important piece of infrastructure. It was a bit smelly; we had to tag along with a French speaking guided group but we had a...More

This was a fun little tour of the Paris Sewer System. Maybe not surprisingly, it was not at all crowded. The Museum was on the Paris Pass, but there was an extra small charge of 3.6 euros that I couldn't actually tell what it was...More

I did not take the tour but I did hear a tour that had an interpreter. However, I think the staff only does French tours. The information in the museum is presented in French and English so it is ideal for a self-tour.
