The present monument forms only a part of the former palace of the Capetian dynasty. Charles V ceased using the palace in the 14th century and decided to house his law courts here. The Concierge, or keeper, was appointed by the king and was responsible for policing within the palace walls. At the end of the 18th century, many prisoners detained by the Revolutionary Tribunal were held in the Conciergerie, including Marie-Antoinette.

We were drawn to the Conciergerie as it was the place Mary Antoinette was kept before she was beheaded. It is intriguing to see where she was held (there is a creepy mannequin), as well as other citizens and other famous pictures. It is right...More

This is essentially a jail which figured large in the French Revolution as the place where prospective victims of the guillatine spent their last days. While not an essential Paris museum, it is of interest to history fans.

I was pretty disappointed with this museum considering the price charged. If you consider that it cost 10 Euros to get into the Louvre and 8.50 Euros to get into this museum, they need to re-think the admission fee. We frankly felt ripped off. Upon...More

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

Hi, I'm visiting Paris soon (Mid August) and I was just wandering how long this building took you to tour and get around. I am very interested in history and would love to see this on my next tour of Paris. But, of course, there are other things I would like to see and do, and I just need to know whether it would fit into the schedule I already have. Thank you!

Sorry, I've only just seen your question so this is probably too late. The trip took us about an hour and a half. A lot of people also do the Sainte Chapelle, which together make for a very interesting few hours.
