This was quite interesting and educational. When we went (December 2011) we were handed a pamphlet in English and left on our own. It's pretty easy to navigate through the tour without a guide. Most of the displays are in both French and English. It...More

We visited the Paris Underground Sewers (Les Egouts) since we had a 6 day Paris Museum Pass. It was a rainy day so it worked out to be inside. Great place to see where all the sewage is processed in Paris. It was like another...More

The museum seemed to be quite old, with few changes since it was created, but it's cheap and seems to be one the less traveled attractions in Paris. If you've been to the catacombs and enjoyed that I would also recommend this place. It is...More

Think sewer, and most people think of smelly, gross, dark underground tunnels. But leave it to the city of Paris to create a gem of a museum, if not a novelty for visitors to experience. Besides the viewing (and smelling) of the vast underground rivers,...More

Visitors to the sewers of Paris can walk upon raised walkways directly above the sewage itself. Paris has a unique underground sewer network dug under streets and boulevards, and every Parisian street lies above its own corresponding sewer, complete with its own underground street sign....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.
