Musee Carnavalet - Histoire de Paris Reviews
マレ地区に残る歴史的建造物のひとつです。残念ながら工事をしていてcloseでした。マリーアントワネットの遺品を楽しみにしていたのに残念でした。入口のレリーフの重厚な雰囲気は、さすがにもと貴族の館です。 more »It is one of the remaining historic buildings in the Male district. Unfortunately, it was close while the construction was done. I was disappointed to be looking forward to the relics of Marie Antoinette. The profound atmosphere of the relief of the entrance is indeed the house of the aristocrat.
كنت دائماً مهتمة بأسرار التاريخ. أسرار تاريخ مدينة مثل باريس رائعة بشكل خاص. لم أستطع تفويت فرصة زيارة متحف كارنافال ، حيث يتم عرض تاريخ باريس بكل فروقه. في جدران المتحف ، جمعت عناصر لا حصر لها تتعلق ... more »I've always been interested in the secrets of history. The secrets of the history of a city like Paris are particularly fascinating. I couldn't miss the opportunity to visit the Carnaval Museum, where the history of Paris is displayed with all its differences. In the walls of the museum, countless elements related to the history of Paris were collected, including thousands of paintings and hundreds of thousands of photographs. I loved the museum because one can get an idea of how Paris has changed over time.
Undergoing extensive renovation. Perhaps the most interesting museum in Paris as it really provides extensive information and exhibits on the history of Paris over the last 2500 years. Extensive history on the Revolution and early Roman settlement. Beautiful interior examples and piece of furniture.
Musee Carnavalet is one of fourteen city of Paris museums and is located in The Marais. Permanent exhibitions are free to visit in this museum, which comprises of two former mansions, the Hotel le Peleteier de Saint Fargeau and the Hotel Carnavalet, for which the museum finds it name. This museum originally opened in 1880 and was most recently expanded in 1989. It features a chronologically arranged series of rooms displaying excellent French paintings, sculptures, engravings and furniture. The museum begins with Prehistoric and Gallo-Roman Paris periods and passing through the Medieval, Renaissance, 17th century, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Revolutionary, 19th and 20th century Paris eras. While rooms dedicated to a much earlier and younger Paris are fine, it is the rooms highlighting Paris from around the Renaissance period onward which we found most enjoyable. The museum houses over 2600 paintings from the 16th century, offering you hours of works to examine and enjoy. The museum also features some remarkable furniture and decorative rooms. We very much enjoyed the decorative 20th century Ballroom of the Hotel de Wendel, the exquisite Art Nouveau decor of the Fouquet Jewelry Boutique display and Louis XV's Room. Overall, this is a wonderful collection that is well worth visiting while in Paris. The Museum can be visited comfortably in around 2-2.5 hours. However, enthusiasts can easily pass much more time here, our visit was slightly over 3 hours and we moved at a fair speed through the various collections. Hint: You can also visit the Musee Cognacy-Jay, which is just around the corner. This museum concentrates on 18th century art and furniture and makes a nice complementary attraction to the Musee Carnavalet collection.
