Musée Carnavalet

Les Oeuvres Incontournables

© Manolo Mylonas

Travel back in time to the Lutetia of the mid-16th century and immerse yourself in the exceptional heritage of one of the rare examples of Renaissance architecture in Paris. Originally a private mansion in the Marais where in the late 17th century none other than the Marquise de Sévigné lived (and wrote her letters), in 1866, following a suggestion by the Prefect Baron Haussmann, the Hôtel des Ligneris (known as “Carnavalet”) was purchased by the City of Paris and turned into the capital’s historic museum. Over the centuries, the museum grounds have been extended, with several famous buildings being annexed to it, amongst others, the Hôtel Le Peletier de Saint-Fargeau with its picturesque orangery. 

Now, after more than four years of extensive renovations, the Musée Carnavalet has finally reopened to the public, offering an unprecedented experience of this major cultural heritage site. From prehistoric and Gallo-Roman cultures, to antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, from Lutèce to its evolution to contemporary Paris, today the Musée Carnavalet boasts over 618,000 rare objects: sculptures, engravings, medals and coins, paintings and photographs, furniture and decorations, each piece coming together to tell the rich (hi-)story of our City of Lights

Register now and join us for this private guided tour of Les Oeuvres Incontournables and let yourself be carried away in time and place in a historical monument like no other in Paris.
