  • The House of the arsenal is a dedicated Center a architecture which is a theme rich and interesting. But it seems that lack of means. The expo always have good guidelines with interesting subjects but the Scéno are poor and there is little communication, visitors in my opinion... Too bad we would want something richer.

  • The permanent expo here is on the history of the development of Paris with lots of good photos and painting reproductions showing how the city has changed over the centuries. Check the listing to see ...  more »
  • Free entry, beautiful exhibition tracing the history of Paris. Several media to understand the evolution and modernization of the capital. (Photo, video, models...) the place is a bit dusty and aging that's too bad.

  • An amazing place and exposition. I an to get there again soon. The person in charge of the climbing wall knows what he does and is really nice and effective.
  • You already have a deep interest in urbanism and architechture. Good presentation!
  • Exhibitions on Paris architecture. Nice to learn about the history of the development of the city.
  • Interesting exhibitions but mostly for architects or people that enjoy learning about the urbanism of Paris and its region
  • This is one of my favourite museums in Paris. It tells the history of Paris, the city. It starts with Paris during roman times and move right up to the Grand Paris project. It is fascinating to see how the urban morphology of Paris changed over time. It is free to enter and often has other special exhibits that are interesting.

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.
