    This should be included in the list of must-see museums in Paris. A great history of the revolution, 18th and 19th century Paris (free!), and a rotating exhibition.

    Not just for history freaks. Carnavalet offers insight in development of city of Paris. Sadly the guillotine was on temporary loan to some foreign museum.

    Very sweet museum with a lovely garden. A must-visit in the Marais. Little Emperor's bed was impressive.

    Free admission. But no English plaques or pamphlets. A nice courtyard.
  • Jacob Juel S.
    A beautiful building but a dull and uninspiring exhibition. There are probably more custodians pr. visitor, than any other museum in Paris, but even then the artefacts where covered ind dust.

    The history of Paris as a city! Located in the Marais. Nice way to spend a couple of hours. Free entry to general collection. Not well known=not super busy. Perfect way to take in art with history.

    Don't miss the room of objects from the prison where the royal family was held before they were decapitated during the revolution. Great wallpaper.

    Free access. The history of Paris told through art, furniture, and even games. Definitely worth it.

    One of my favorite museums. It's free for the permanent collection that goes from the Iron Age till the XIX century.

    Check out contents of Proust's bedroom, famously lined in cork for soundproofing. The principal item is the brass bed in which he slept as a child and wrote much of In Search of Lost Time.

    One of the most charming museum in Paris. The 18th and 19th century are incredible. Don't forget to explore the Fouquet's shop by Mucha. It's a wonderful Arts & Crafts reproduction.

    Perfect for history buffs, Musée Carnavalet takes visitors back several centuries for a fascinating experience. See everything from Mari Antoinette’s hair to Napolean’s ceremonial armor.

    Museu incrivelmente surprendente! Jamais imaginei que fosse tão bonito e que a história de Paris fosse ser tão interessante em um lugar fechado, e não nas ruas. Lembrando que o museu é gratuito sempre

    파리 역사에 대한 흥미있는 전시물들이 꽤 많습니다. 게다가 입장료 무료. 그런데 작품에 영어 설명 전혀 없이 프랑스어로만 씌여 있으니 영어 오디오 가이드(5유로)를 빌리는 게 도움될 듯합니다.

    Hormis l'histoire de Paris que le musée raconte, il vaut le détour rien que par ses intérieurs magnifiques et ses jardins. Et en plus, il est gratuit !
