We arrived a little before closing time because my partner sprained her ankle on the way. Staff immediately took us to the elevator, didn’t charge us, and took us directly to the tapestries. The tapestries were truly amazing, but the staff were wonderful!

We visited Cluny on a free Sunday in November. There were no lines at the door. Unfortunately the "Lady and the Unicorn" tapestries were not on display until later that afternoon so we missed them! Parts of the museum were closed for renovation now for...More

It was a quick visit but worth the time. The unicorn cycle of tapestries alone is worth the trip but there are many more items to view and learn about. Not a big place and not overly crowded. I will go back when I have...More

Right now, the tapestries are the best reason to visit, and an excellent reason. The tapestries are stunning and fascinating. Since I last visited some years ago, a modern annex has been added, and parts of the Roman bath complex opened up. But large parts...More

We really enjoyed seeing the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. They are absolutely breathtaking! We were not able to see most of the museum due to closures. The tapestries made up for that for me though! We had the Paris Museum Pass and this museum...More

I loved this little museum, not the least because it is an absolute collision of opposing architectural styles. The main entrance is in a modern metal and glass structure grafted onto a partially excavated Roman ruin and the backside is a medieval monastery! All right...More

Had a very mixed experience at the Cluny Museum. Half the museum--the part without the unicorn tapestries--is closed, but there is no notice of the closure when you purchase your ticket. Also, although my guide book advised the Audio Guide was included, it wasn't. Considering...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During

The museum does have an excellent gift shop but I don't know about the needlepoint. They did have a beautiful scarf depicting one of the tapestries but it was quite expensive. I believe they had some pillows as well.
