  • A very nice museum where you can see how schools were a century ago. The collevtions are impresive and the whole atmosphere is just right. Inexpensive and beautiful. A must see. 
  • Interesting museum, which gives you an impression of how education was then of time. Fun for something different!

  • The contrast between outdoor discretion and the richness of the Interior. Especially do not hesitate to enter. A surprising collection of school things in past years: books, furniture, teaching tools. (and so what if you come in with purple ink on your fingers.) More than friendly home of the couple in charge of this museum. BRAVO!

  • Date: 25/08/2016 place to visit: School Museum walking along one of the streets of la Cité found this small museum dedicated to teaching that was made in France between the third and the Fourth Republic. There are five rooms where school supplies and documents of the time, where you also have the possibility of writing with pen and purple ink in a few very old desks are exposed. In addition there is a library with manuals, files, etc. It is a most interesting visit if you go with children since they "share" of as they were former schools.

  • 3.5 free adult euro for children. The Museum in him even is average but the conference on chivalry is very interesting.
