Certainly one of the highlights during my last Paris visit. Perfectly housed in a medieval building, all the ivory carvings, statues, and various religious objects are shown with care, if insufficient information. Walk around and take in the expressions of various Jesus, Mary and saints....More

I've been in Paris so many times and it is just now that I discovered, thanks to a good friend, this museum. It is outstanding, even for the city that has Louvre and so many other museums ... Must visit !

We enjoyed our visit of a little under 2 hours. There were many interesting objects that were well displayed. There was limited English - but that did not take away from our enjoyment. I especially liked the numerous stained glass windows, metalwork and tapestries.

Don't get me wrong, it's well laid out and a real gem of Paris, a must see, especially the manuscripts and the stained glass windows, but for the price, even at student costs of 9 euros each there just wasn't enough. It didn't help that...More

This museum is installed in what used to be the town house of the abbots of Cluny, its present gothic and Renaissance shape dating from the late 15th century. An unusual feature is that impressive remains of 3th century Gallo-Roman thermal baths have simply been...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

About an hour and a half to two hours at the most. It is a cozy, small size and that gives you plenty of time to go through there entire collection and still linger while viewing the tapestries and visiting the gift store.
