Museum of the Histoire de France

Leisure centre in Paris

Created by Napoleon III in 1867, the Museum of the History of France takes place in the 3rd district of Paris. Today called the National Archives Museum, it is located mainly in the hotel of Soubise.

In a beautiful setting, it offers to discover exceptional archival documents, next to the apartments of the prince and the princess of Soubise of a very beautiful Rocaille style. The museum of the History of France does not have permanent collections and makes turn of documents of the National Archives in order to avoid a fast deterioration.

It is thus possible to discover documents such as the wills of kings, the oath of the Jeu de Paume, documents of the Merovingian period, or evidence of major criminal trials and objects seized like the Landru's glasses or the infernal Fieschi machine.
