If you're staying in the Latin Quarter, take a quarter-day to see this museum! For museum-pass holders with an hour or two to spare, this museum is unlike any other in Paris. You'll see the Girl and the Unicorn tapestry, missing heads from Notre Dame, hidden during the French revolution and only uncovered in the 1970's, plus a wonderful Roman bath c. 50BC, upon which the Hotel de Cluny was later built.

We have been here several times over the years and never tire of the place. The abbey buildings are fabulously restored...vast spaces that set off the exhibits which are beautifully displayed. The tapestries are very special..of course the lady and the unicorn.
Best is feeling uncrowded in such a lovely place.

excellent collection of Middle Age art and artifacts, in particular the wonderful series of tapestries of the Lady and the Unicorn. There are also artifacts and excavations dating back to Roman times on the site. Well worth a visit, the museum is very conveniently and centrally located. Skip the crowds at the Louvre and go here instead!

This beautiful building houses a lovely museum with a range of exhibits from Roman to medieval. The frigidarium is a vaulted and extraordinary part of the Roman bath. The tapestries are gorgeous, and the Lady with the Unicorn series is here. If you don't fancy the museum, don't miss the medieval garden outside ...free access, great space to take a few minutes to rest!

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.
