    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.

    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.

    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.

    This is a really small museum where you will know more about the si story of Paris. Currently there is an exhibition about the islands of the seine river. There are also some tables and chairs for people to chill or eat, you can come with your food, they don't sell any.

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.
