Musée Carnavalet, Paris: 37 reviews and 89 photos
Carnavalet Museum is focusing on Paris History from antiquity to modern times. There are many sculptures and furnitures, paintings of course and interesting scale models of the city. It was really interesting to see how a medieval city turned into a modern capital. I loved the museum’s motive not to show top class items but items that really show part of Paris’ history.
By the way if you visit Pont Neuf you will see some really ugly faces carved on it, they are replicas actually while the original ones are located at Carnavalet museum.
We visited on Sunday morning back in 2005, and we enjoyed not only the artwork inside but also the small beautiful garden
As other City Museums there’s no entrance fee. The building that houses the museum was built in 1548, it had several owners through the centuries until 1866 when the city of Paris turned the property into a museum.
It is open Tuesday to Sunday 10.00-18.00
Address: 23 rue Sévigné, 75003 Paris
