I was very sad to have wasted my time here. This museum is something to see if you live here or have visited so much all the big stuff is off your list. Don't waste your time if time is precious.

The permanent expo of models of major French monuments is an interesting study of model building and that art form. There are often excellent temporary expos here in this very large exposition space so check the listings to see if something interests you.

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
