When I went to buy a ticket, the lady at the ticket desk only said "4 euros". This was half the price from what my 2016 guidebook said. I then went to the next desk for the audio tapes. The lady there said I had...More

I had no idea unicorns figured so prominently in history! The Lady and Unicorn exhibit was SO cool and well done with excellent English translations of everything. Beyond that, the current collection of Middle Ages artifacts is very small, but I know the museum is...More

We first visited the Cluny Museum in 1983, and have returned several times over the intervening years. We've observed the size of the collection diminish over the years, but the one thing that has us returning is the Unicorn tapestry collection. My grandchildren perked up...More

Six exquisite tapestries with unicorns. And other artefacts from the middle ages. Small collection, but worth it.

An incredible piece of history in the center of Paris. Parts of this building go back to Roman times up through the medieval period. And, let's not forget, the famous series of tapestries, The Lady with the Unicorn. Just incredible. And when you're done with...More

Great collection of unicorn tapestries well presented. No entry problems. Roman baths in great shape. Get a guided tour of them as you see more than on your own

For only 5 Euros, you get to be in the same space with the Unicorn Tapestries and some of the most beautiful artifacts of the middle ages. I loved going into the Roman ruins and being in the same space with the tapestries meant the...More

The Roman baths here are in amazing condition and well worth a visit. There is an audio guide which provides a good description in English.

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.
