Wandering through the Marais we came upon a terrific exhibition at the National Archives tracing the development of the architecture profession from before the Renaissance to the 19th Century, replete with drawings, models, and historical documents. Highly recommended.

If archives and old documents are your thing, you will love this museum. Paper that is many, many hundred of years old documenting some of Europe’s most important events along with maps and other ephemera.

Interesting display of elegant rooms on 2 floors and French historical artifacts, such as a copy of the Edict of Nantes. There are also wonderful garden areas, and the entry court is quite spectacular.

Not only the Hotel de Soubise is definitely the richest private mansion in Paris at the 18th, but go there not only for the interiors or the exhibitions. Entering all the successive gardens, you"ll discover other constructions from the same period. You may also rest...More

The historic building and interiors would be enough of a reason to visit, but the Archives frequently has exhibits as well.
