This is a very interesting museum, which is located in its own subject - in a sewer. But don’t worry - it doesn’t stink (in all meanings)! Unfortunately, some items provided information only in French, but still many others have English translation and with entrance...More

Interesting museum, with information displays on the history of Paris sewers. It's definitely smelling in here, since the exhibition is underground, in a real sewer. It would be even better if some real sewermen were onsite, explaining first hand what their job actually is. There...More

The visit was interesting as it explains the development of Paris and the infrastructure that is required to maintain and grow with the development of Paris. It has good displays and most of them gave an English section. It was a cold day- maybe that's...More

On a rainy day, it’s a great activity. Yes, it’s sniffy but what? Very interesting history and technical exhibition. Where ever you live, you must know how a city take care of you know what. Don’t worry, no rats.

We enjoyed this tour, the thought that has gone into the presentations as one tours different aspects of the sewers. Yes, it was a little sniffy, but quite bearable. One got a good education on the technical aspects of what it takes to keep a...More

Title says it all. I expected a cool,waking tour. What I got was a smelly sewer I couldn't get out of fast enough. All I can say is at least it was included with the museum pass so I didn't have to pay for it.

Sounds revolting, it's a very interesting self led tour. The only guides are in French, it's easy to navigate your way through. The sewer is still functioning and does stink in stages. It's also very cheap 4Euro And takes about 30 minutes.

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.
