  • The US killed Carnavalet is a must ride. Already at the entrance the visitor has the vision of a beautiful garden and inspiring.

  • Not bad for a quick wander around. It's free and not too busy with a small but nice garden. Parts of the interior look more like an antique store than a museum. No English descriptions.
  • nice moderately sized museum which details the history of france. Nice getaway, not as popular as the louvre but still contains art and history.
  • Fantastic Paris history museum. Under renovation in April 2016 when we visited, be sure to check if renovation is finished if you're making a special trip to go there, as much of the museum is not available for visitors while under renovation.
  • Fantastic, free Museum operated by the City of Paris. Huge amount of detail on the history of Paris and did have a really lovely gift shop
  • An absolute gem! The building and the interiors are truly beautiful. More information in English would be great though.
