The Sewer museum is closed until the Spring. I was aware of this before coming to Paris but thought it was worth double checking. We walked by there this afternoon. Would have been a fun thing to see. Oh Well, something for next time. Im...More

I really enjoyed it. Once you get over the smell, the stories of people escaping through the sewers and how they went about cleaning them are quite amusing. It is something different and well worth a visit.

It does smell, but it is a cool and relatively inexpensive stop for something of fun the beaten path. To get more out of it, you do have to stop and read quite a few placards, which may not be interesting for young kids. They...More

No, no one got sick. It’s not much worse than a portapotty! Mostly a strong musky ammonia smell. The tunnels are cool, great for kids maybe 4th grade and up. The history and infrastructure is the draw for adults.
