  • Scan pyramids: the virtual tour of the pyramid is exceptional. Unique moment, the VR is very well made. We walk in front of the pyramid, we visit the Queen's room with surprises the latest discoveries TTE! To do absolutely, when it will resume mid April because everything is full until the end of March. Our doctor in Egyptology guide was exciting, simple explanation of the techniques used by the research teams. And the place of the city of architecture is fantastic, plan to visit the Expos afterwards.

  • Very big museum with amazing exposition. There are parts of buildings and sculptures from the different regions of France (mostly from the central and western part). At the 2nd floor you can find exposition of modern buildings and its models including the full scale model of the French modern flat. At the last rooms (don’t forget to visit it) there is and exposition of the art from churches.
  • My husband and I visited this museum because it was included with the Paris Museum Pass. We probably would have not gone if it wasn’t included so we are grateful that it was. Wow. This museum has some amazing giant artifacts. We got lost in the galleries. So much to see and observe. We loved everything. Upstairs on the top floor there was an exiting exhibit of architecture & design and how it shapes our communities. It was beautiful and informative. They even have a model modern home you can walk into.
