In the heart of Le Marais, the fashionable right bank district of Paris, the Carnavalet Museum (Musee Carnavalet) occupies a superb 16th century palace. The museum is fully devoted to the history of Paris.
Its many palace rooms, shop signs and old Paris paintings make Carnavalet Museum a must see for Paris lovers. Its visit can be combined with the moving visit of the near-by Jewish History and Art Museum.
