Using the Paris Metro we took it to the end of the line and had a delightful day exploring this royal castle, not to be missed. The artifacts cover all time periods, and what used to be the Great Hall has the bonus of worldwide...More
Very interesting archeology museum a short train ride from Paris. Unfortunately the displays do not have English language descriptions but just viewing them is worthwhile. Incredible ancient Gold artifacts, as well as a wide selection of Bronze Age materials. The Great Hall itself is worth...More
This museum is located in a grand castle (chateau) that is easily accessable from Paris just steps from the Saint Germain en Laye RER A subway station. It is truly a mini-Versailles with much of the feel of Versailles without massive crowds. Indeed, I think...More

However, if you are interested, then it is worthwhile paying the admission...More
I was really looking forward to this museum and dreamed of all the goodies this place must hold. The reality was wasted time, wasted trip across Paris and wasted entrance fee.
The entrance fee got me in to see a couple of rooms on one...More
I didn't expect to find myself in a natural history museum on my vacation but I was very happy that I did. It's a well-stocked natural history museum, well-organized and the surrounding grounds are just lovely. Located not far from Paris, do yourself a favor...More
