An ancient medieval fortress and prison, Conciergerie features remarkable medieval royal architecture. This was the site of Marie Antoinette's imprisonment in the period leading up to her execution in 1793. Don't miss the clock tower, which is visible from the street and was cleaned in 2013: it is the oldest clock tower in Paris.

  • A quiet not so crowded place and must visit considering the importance of the palace during the French revolution. Queen Mary Antoinette was imprisoned here before her last execution. Paris Museum Pass provides free access and at the ticket validation you can get the tablet for an immersive experience. It's free and easy to use. Just scan at the different spots and you can visit through time to see how it used to be and additional details. The great hall and public kitchen with the arches are amazing. An architectural wonder intact for us to travel in time. The place where the Queen was kept as a prisoner and the history around the Revolution is impressive to experience in person. There are toilets in the building and they are well maintained.
  • Museum of French revolution, presented in an attractive ‘gamified’ way, using a provided tablet. Visitors learn about history through interactive interface, augmented reality and treasure hunt. A unique experience and good demonstration, how technology can make 'boring' history and visit to a museum more interesting.
