I give this place 5 stars but 2 stars for PR and organization. Perhaps this shows how architects... read more

I give this place 5 stars but 2 stars for PR and organization. Perhaps this shows how architects can create a museum and how not to find it. Think tower of Babel. It's a truly wonderful place. There are exact replicas of many major church...More

Amazing museum! Just incredible what they brought here. One of the most interesting museums of the city. Impossible to be described, you have to come and see.

Paris has so many museums that one like this, which would be the crown jewel in a smaller town, gets overlooked. With full scale plaster casts of the most important monuments in France, reproductions of frescos, glass, etc. and small scale models of the buildings,...More

Showing excellent plaster casts of monuments dating from the 12th to the 18th century from all over France, this museum is well worth a visit if you are not planning to visit all these places. On the upper floor is a (changing) space for models...More

The reproductions of some of the significant monuments and structures in France are superb, the models, as usual in France are amazing and the setting is wonderful. Have lunch in the café with a view of the Eiffel Tower that is a bit different.

We stopped in after a visit to the Trocadero area and were very impressed. Hundreds of building casts, many of them the originals moved to preserve them, on the main floor. Little do some of the Notre Dame visitors realize that original stonework is here...More

Trocadero
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
