Cluny Museum Walking Tour, Episode 8

Categories: First Time in Paris, Museums in Paris, Paris

This episode features our frequent and very popular guest Elyse Rivin. If you enjoy her episodes, please consider supporting her on Patreon.

UPDATE: The Cluny museum is undergoing renovations until the Spring on 2021. Right now you can still see the Lady and the Unicorn, but check their website for updates.

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.

Not to Miss at the Cluny Museum

So much to see there, make sure you make time for these:

  • The  Lady and the Unicorn
  • Roman Baths
  • Stained-Glass (you can see it up-close at eye level)
  • Statue heads from Notre Dame that angry revolutionaries had broken off

  1. Speaking of entrance fees. If you are a citizen of the EU or have a visa and are under 26 you can get in for free to all national museums that includes the Louvre and monuments like the Arc de Triomphe etc. I had a French one year long term visitors visa and was able to get in for free. You also get half price RER tickets on the weekends and many other discounts movies etc!

    1. Hello David and welcome to Join Us in France! That’s a very good point, there are lots of discounts for young people in France so long as you have ID.
