Carnavalet Museum

Visit Paris History Museum

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.

Hotel Carnavalet

Hotel Carnavalet was built in 1548. This beautiful city manshion has delicate sculptures by Jean Goujon on its facades and a superb statue of Louis XIV in the courtyard at the entrance.

The Carnavalet Museum, trendy rue des Francs-Bourgeois near-by with its fashion shops and Place des Vosges (Vosges square) make up a great one day program out of the beaten track.
