This is not a museum you will see on the top 5 or 10 lists, but you should put it on yours. The building is amazing to just sit and look at and then there are the tapestries! I could say a lot more, but...More

This was a great stop, culminating with the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. I would recommend combining this museum with the Military Museum, where you can see 100 actual suits of armor.

The tapestries of the Lady and the Unicorn are superb, and well worth a visit. The museum also has a range of other interesting exhibits. Unfortunately the curation is very poor, with little attempt to provide either broad or specific context to the exhibits or...More

Partner who loves history enjoyed it but somewhat boring for others. If you're into historical items it is worth your time.

This is a splendid collection of medieval statuary, stained glass, and ivories. Whatever you do, do not miss the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. The pictures don't do them justice.

Less well known than other Paris museums, Musee de Cluny is a not-to-miss treasure. The remarkable Lady and the Unicorn series of woven tapestries are on display in their own room. The intricacy and quality of the weaving is hard to fathom, but Cluny staff...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
