French National Library (Bibliotheque Nationale de France) Reviews
opened until 8 PM the library is impressive. The building has an amazing architecture, reminding 4 open books with a nice garden in the middle. You can relax, read, experience the place in peace. more »
旅行者はリシュリュー館の入り口で写真撮影、動画撮影は許可していただけますが、中に入る事は出来ません。お城のような美しいうっとりする図書館です。予約が必要ですがフランス語のツアーもあるようです。パラロワイヤルの近くにあるので近くまで行かれたら一見の価値はあると思います。 more »Travelers are allowed to take photos and take videos at the entrance to the Richelieu Museum, but they cannot enter. It is a beautiful and captivating library like a castle. I need to make a reservation, but there seems to be a tour in French. It's close to Pararoyale, so i think it's worth a look if you go near by.
Fantastic place and space. Lots of lectures and also interesting for architecture travelers or architecture students good to see.
This is the 6th largest Library in the World. It contains about 40 million items-- of which 14 million are books! One of the locations has a "newish", modern building whose architecture is astounding!! From a distance the buildings resemble books located along the Seine!! If one has an interest in enhancing their knowledge of France this is an important place to visit! I hope that this Review has been helpful!
