MUSEE DE CLUNY aka MUSEE NATIONAL DU MOYEN AGE / SMALL MUSEUMS WITH HUGE APPEAL

Bookmark and Share

Gallo-Roman ruins including the baths, built in 200 AD, are visible reminders here at the Musee de Cluny, of what lies buried beneath Paris, its Roman heritage.

There are vestiges of life in Roman times, all over the city, but the vaulted cold bath room here, the frigidarium, is said to be the largest of its kind in France. There is a tepidarium here as well (warm baths).

The museum itself, a mansion built by the Abbot of Cluny in 1500, boasts one of the world’s finest collections of Medieval art.

Treasures abound.

The Lady With The Unicorn Tapestries woven in the 1400s, are captivating.

There are everyday objects such as kitchen utensils and toys.

Stained glass from Sainte-Chappelle, dating back to the 13th century is dazzling.

Here you can kindle a love of illuminated manuscripts, as the Cluny's collection is masterful.

Don’t be alarmed if the ghost of Mary Tudor glides softly down a corridor. She was forced to reside here after the death of her husband, Louis XII, by his successor, King Francis I, in 1515.

Francis wanted to keep a close eye on her, especially since it was rumored that she might be pregnant.

Specialty museums abound in Paris. Here, at the Cluny, ancient Romans and Medieval history are bound together in the most unique of environments, definitely worthy of a visit.

I have been surfing online greater than three hours as of late,
yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours.
It's lovely price sufficient for me. In my view,
if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will likely
be much more helpful than ever before.

Jepp, das Bild ist aus dem Louvre. Wir sind sehr viel Metro gefahren. Haben uns jeiwels einen Navigo-Pass geholt mit dem du die ganze Woche ganz Paris befahren kannst. War echt bequem. Aber gelaufen sind wir trotzdem verdammt viel. Beklaut wurden wir gottseidank nicht. Von uns trinkt keiner Bier Also nach dem Paris-Urlaub sind wir erst mal blank. Und Urlaub bekomme ich auch frfchestens im Dezember wieder. Von daher bezweifle ich, dass das mit Kanufahren was wird. Aber ich frage auf jeden Fall mal bei Domi nach, die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt
