I give you that, the famous four tapestries of the lady and the unicorn are mesmerising. Except for that thought that there is not that much to see

I was eager to visit the museum due to my interest in medieval art. I was disappointed to see on the website that much of the museum is closed due to renovations. There were two exhibits open at this time. I enjoyed both of them....More

Good thing was that we got in for free (first sunday of the month), but we were disappointed by what was here to see. Just a couple of exhibition rooms, but only one that interested us with some very fine art. The basement and outer...More

This museum is one of the less known in Paris so you won't find large crowds which is good. The collection inside is impressive especially the tapestries from the dark ages but it seemed small. Surely it has the potential for something more impressive but...More

The building and stone statuary exhibits are wonderful. And the unicorn tapestries and displays of gold are lovely to look at. We had no difficulty until we got to the gift shop and the lady there apparently did not want to be there. Was chatting...More

We arrived a little before closing time because my partner sprained her ankle on the way. Staff immediately took us to the elevator, didn’t charge us, and took us directly to the tapestries. The tapestries were truly amazing, but the staff were wonderful!

We visited Cluny on a free Sunday in November. There were no lines at the door. Unfortunately the "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries were not on display until later that afternoon so we missed them! Parts of the museum were closed for renovation now for...More

It was a quick visit but worth the time. The unicorn cycle of tapestries alone is worth the trip but there are many more items to view and learn about. Not a big place and not overly crowded. I will go back when I have...More

Right now, the tapestries are the best reason to visit, and an excellent reason. The tapestries are stunning and fascinating. Since I last visited some years ago, a modern annex has been added, and parts of the Roman bath complex opened up. But large parts...More

The museum does have an excellent gift shop but I don't know about the needlepoint. They did have a beautiful scarf depicting one of the tapestries but it was quite expensive. I believe they had some pillows as well.
