  • How wonderful that the items shown have been preserved and are on display to the public. For a small fee you can be lost for hours, going back hundreds of years. Awe-inspiring, this collection is outstanding. Not for young children, even the building which houses the pieces is unique. Some of the best views of the Eiffel Tower and Paris are showcased in their amazing windows. Spend some time appreciating the talents of bygone eras.
  • This museum is all about urban architecture throughout the ages. There is a huge and wonderful section all about Paris architecture, giving one the opportunity to learn all about Haussmanian buildings and those big broad avenues he created.
  • We went to see "Revoir Paris" from Schuiten and Peeters. It's a very interesting look at reimagining cities.
  • Great exhibition on stained glass and cafe with amazing view over Eiffel Tower and city.
  • A lovely museum for architecture lovers.
