Musée Carnavalet - Histoire de Paris

Situated in the historical Marais district, the Musée Carnavalet is dedicated to the history of Paris from its origins to present day. Opened in 1880, the current museum occupies two mansions from the 16th and 17th centuries. In this remarkable architectural setting, you can discover the rich collections of the museum: medieval and Gallo-Roman archeological collection, mementos of the French Revolution, paintings, sculptures, furniture and items of art. The collections are presented in rooms which reconstruct the atmosphere of 14th and 15th century private residences. One of the highlights of the visit is the Orangery, which was entirely restored in 2000. Major exhibitions are regularly organized here.
