I give this place 5 stars but 2 stars for PR and organization. Perhaps this shows how architects can create a museum and how not to find it. Think tower of Babel. It's a truly wonderful place. There are exact replicas of many major church...More
Paris has so many museums that one like this, which would be the crown jewel in a smaller town, gets overlooked. With full scale plaster casts of the most important monuments in France, reproductions of frescos, glass, etc. and small scale models of the buildings,...More
Showing excellent plaster casts of monuments dating from the 12th to the 18th century from all over France, this museum is well worth a visit if you are not planning to visit all these places. On the upper floor is a (changing) space for models...More
The reproductions of some of the significant monuments and structures in France are superb, the models, as usual in France are amazing and the setting is wonderful.
Have lunch in the café with a view of the Eiffel Tower that is a bit different.
I visited the museum since I walked by and had some free time (it's included in the museum pass). The collection is ok. Especially the ideal apartment that is build inside is a nice view on the 60's view on living. The marine museum is...More
I visited the Musee des Monuments Francais using my Paris Museum Pass. Its located right next to the observation area across the street from the Eiffel Tower. I was pleasantly surprised by this museum. It had all the famous monuments replicated so you could walk...More
The Musee des Monuments Francais is a bright, airy and altogether lovely place to spend a few hours admiring beautifully rendered casts and models of facades, as well as decorations from many of France's most beautiful churches, monuments and other buildings. Not the least of...More
We stopped in after a visit to the Trocadero area and were very impressed. Hundreds of building casts, many of them the originals moved to preserve them, on the main floor. Little do some of the Notre Dame visitors realize that original stonework is here...More
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical
significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
