    If you're familiar with Clemenceau's role in early 20thc peacemaking (which most Yr 9 students will be), then this place is intriguing and insightful. Much more modest than I imagined and left exactly...  more »

    You enter the Lair of the 'tiger', not restored but in the State, very well restored last year. We enter into the intimacy of history. Discover, near the Trocadero.

    Enjoyable visit to this small museum which is most interesting for its view of a turn of the century apartment. The garden and bedroom are worth a visit.  more »

    A Wonderful, dedicated museum. Time Capsule + wealth of information. Try to see a conference about Clemenceau (app 1 hour, very insightful)

    A small house nestled in a greenery setting, shame that it is not visible from the outside, the free audio guide is welcome to understand the life of the politician, a great discovery...

    Museum to discover absolutely: both Georges Clemenceau's apartment remained intact with its late 19th-early 20th decoration and its works of art many original or old copies (Rodin, showman, Poussin, Monet, Manet,...) as the documentary Gallery (which traces the life of the Tiger). More unexpected, we can walk in the garden, haven of peace near the Trocadero and sit under the bamboo. A must!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
