The Cluny Museum
This week Elyse takes us to the Cluny Museum, or Musée National du Moyen Age in French. While this museum is not usually on the list of must-sees for first-time visitors in Paris, we think it probably should be.
When Annie and Elyse recorded this episode, Annie hadn't visited it yet. She has seen been several times and it has become one of her favorites in Paris. One of the reasons why it makes the top of our list is that the Cluny Museum affords us a wonderful walk into the distant past. It is also a fairly small museum that you can see in an hour, or perhaps two if you linger.
Pieces Not to Miss at the Cluny Museum
At the Cluny, you will see The Lady and the Unicorn, the Roman Baths, the stained glass up-close and the statue heads from Notre Dame that angry revolutionaries had thrown in the Seine river.
The Cluny is closed for renovations until Mid-July 2018
