History of Paris

One of the must-see places in Le Marais is the gorgeous Carnavalet Museum. It’s only a few steps away from the Place des Vosges and set in a Renaissance-era palace with a really wonderful and sunny garden.

The Carnavalet recounts the history of Paris. Aside from the artifacts it holds, it’s decorated in the same fashion as when it was inhabited so you can get a good idea of what Parisian life was like centuries ago.

In Le Marais

The Hotel Carnavalet was built in 1584 by Nicolas Dupuis and, along with the Hotel le Peletier, houses the Carnavalet Museum of history of Paris. The former houses an exhibit about the Renaissance on the ground floor and the first floor spans the 17th century up until the Revolution. In the latter, the ground floor covers the First and Second Empires and first floor covers the city's modern history.

It's located in the Le Marais neighborhood, at the St-Paul metro stop. It's open every day except Monday from 10-17:15.
