Carnavalet Museum

Behind this somewhat mysterious name is hidden one of the capital’s most genuinely Parisian museums. The oldest of the municipal museums tells the story of Paris from a bygone era (a prehistoric dugout canoe dating from 4600 BC) to the present day, in all its immense variety.
Although it is essentially a history museum, the musée Carnavalet is nevertheless an art gallery exhibiting mostly original works in keeping with the spirit of the genius of Paris.

General Leclerc and liberation of Paris Museum - Jean Moulin Museum

Designed by historians specialised in the Second World War, these two museums, which are also research and documentation centres, narrate and retrace the history of three “Companions of the Liberation”: General Leclerc de Hauteclocque, Jean Moulin and the City of Paris. The museography, which places major emphasis on audiovisual features, commemorates a crucial moment in 20th century history.
