The Cluny Museum - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in Paris

Based in the prestigious mansion of the Abbots of Cluny, built at the end of the 15th century, in Paris' 5th arrondissement at the heart of the Latin quarter, this sumptuous museum contains not only some important collections dedicated to medieval arts, but also Gallo-Roman remains from the thermal baths of the ancient city of Lutetia. When you visit this place steeped in history, you can also admire the famous Pillar of the Boatmen in the frigidarium room, Romanesque and Gothic sculptures (some of which come from the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris), magnificent stained glass windows and metalwork, as well as remarkable tapestries, the most famous of which is the famous wall hanging of the Lady and the Unicorn.

Once your visit is over, you can relax outside by strolling in the charming medieval-inspired garden, including a kitchen garden with old vegetable varieties, a medicinal herb garden and a celestial garden with flowers symbolising the Virgin.

The Cluny Museum, which is accessible by public transport via the Cluny - La Sorbonne metro station, regularly hosts temporary exhibitions, conferences, debates and medieval music concerts.
