We decided to visit this museum mainly to see the best preserved roman ruins in Paris, but boy we were surprised by what the collection had to behold. Beautifully preserved stain glass windows, marble statues, jewellery, pottery and an insight into daily life during the middle ages. But of course, the highlight of the museum are the tapestries. The Lady and the Unicorn as featured in Sir Kenneth Clark's Civilisation was the crown in the jewel. The medieval house the museum is mainly concentrated in and the vast Roman baths make for a stunning location. Friendly staff and a great gift shop make for one of the top lesser-known attractions to visit in Paris. Will make sure to fit this museum into our itinerary again on our next trip to Paris.
