Only in Paris could this be considered "small" and "off the beaten track." They have a first rate collection of items - mostly from the 11th - 14th centuries. There's great variety of materials - lots of tapestries, wood carvings, stained glass, statues, household items...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,

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
