Formerly the Musée de Cluny, Musee De Cluny houses a variety of important medieval artifacts, particularly its tapestry collection. The most famous tapestry of the collection is the 15th-century "La Dame à la Licorne" (The Lady and the Unicorn).

  • The collection of Medieval artifacts mostly from Christian sites is amazing and a treasure trove that broadens my understanding of early Christianity. Pieces are in incredible shape. I love the museum guiding visitors through various themes of artifacts as I got more insights into European culture from many centuries prior. This museum is a gem for those of us who love to see historical objects . Plus the Roman Baths of the 2nd or 3rd century are well preserved giving more insights to our European history.
  • Exceptional. Contains valuable pieces from its roman baths time, and a later monks' cloister and a more recent "art accumulation place". It features great columns, capitals, stained glasses, tapestries, sculptures, altarpieces... Like other museums of remote times, it also contains pieces of "long travelled distances difficult to explain", like elements from cloisters in the Pyrenees. It can easily occupy a whole day to visit in depth. Additionally there is a cafe and some space in the patio to relax and switch off from the noisy fast-paced city outside the Cluny's old walls.
