When in Paris one must visit this museum. It is small with some incredible pieces of history throughout the whole building. The "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries are amazing, with one room devoted to them. You can sit and stare at them for as long as you like. Every room has something different and is well worth a visit, and should not be missed. The building itself is very interesting as well.

Especially loved the tapestries and the lower-level archeological area of Roman baths. Saw my first Pope's rings on display here!

This museum was a surprise - quite a mixture really. The unicorn tapestries are really exquisite but the musuem has a lot of other interesting objects and particulalry the underground roman baths. The old Hotel de Cluny makes an interesting museum with something different in every room. Not so large so you can see it all well in a few hours.

This little known museum houses extraordinary tapestries and other items of Middle Ages, all in castle-like surroundings. Fascinating pieces from a very interesting era.

Study what you will find in this very interesting museum as the audio tour was not much help. Wonderful tapestries
