Musee Carnavalet (Carnavalet Museum) Paris

Carnavalet Museum Paris

Visiting Museums
In the heart of the fashionable right bank Le Marais district in Paris, the Carnavalet Museum (Musee Carnavalet in French) occupies a superb 1548 palace. It is devoted to the history of Paris.
The Hotel Carnavalet was built in 1548. It has beautiful sculptures by Jean Goujon on its facades and a superb statue of Louis the XIV in the main courtyard at the entrance of the museum.
Its reconstituted palace rooms and collection of Paris paintings (above, the Place des Vosges, below the Seine river) make it a favourite destination of Paris lovers.
The Carnavalet Museum, the trendy rue des Francs-Bourgeois near-by with its fashion shops and the beautiful Place des Vosges (Vosges square) make up a great one day program out of the beaten track.
