This newly renovated museum has a great audio headset system to tour 2000 year old Roman ruins and artifacts found around Paris, France. Very extensive exhibit by exhibit audio files where you can make this a long or short tour.

I know everyone goes crazy for the art of the Italian Renaissance, but I've always been more fond of art in the Middle Ages. The Cluny is housed in a wonderful old building that was constructed over a Roman bath, which has been excavated so...More

We wandered around the outside of the museum trying to find the entrance...someone finally pointed out a tiny sign stating that the museum is currently closed for renovation. Just an FYI for other travellers!

Check opening times before you go as it is programmed for renovation soon! Visiting Cluny is like visiting another world. You walk in through a stone mansion that could be Sleeping Beauty's into a display of arts crafts and artifacts of daily life from the...More

We were staying in a hotel five minutes away, and had a Paris Pass which warned that some galleries might be closed. We were therefore disappointed to find it completely shut, announced only by a notice on the door. We had a look around the...More

Musee du Moyen Age was a delightful departure. It was an excellent well run, well laid out museum. A lot less crowded more enjoyable. The site itself is a living piece of the past. Built on and around a 3rd century Roman bath house. The...More

One of the best aspects of this museum is the architecture, both inside and out. As you approach the outside, you will enter the courtyard. Take a minute to look at the building itself. It is quite lovely. Inside, be sure to visit the lower...More

We were fortunate enough to visit while the Lady and the Unicorn were in full display in November, and those alone were worth a visit. Strange courtyard, very old building, just a ton of archaeological artifacts inside. If you CAN time a visit with the...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
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

The museum does have an excellent gift shop but I don't know about the needlepoint. They did have a beautiful scarf depicting one of the tapestries but it was quite expensive. I believe they had some pillows as well.
