  • This is an unexpectedly nice museum. To begin with, the staff is very polite and attentive. The medals on display are, of course, ultimately jewellery with artistic significance in addition to the cultural and historical meaning. They are accompanied by some amazing paintings and artifacts, such as a very large and elaborately embroidered ceremonial cape, a number of historical weapons and some other ceremonial paraphernalia. It's right opposite Musee D'Orsay and well worth visiting.
  • Fascinating museum specializing in France's two highest orders of chivalry, the Legion of Honour and the Order of Merit. In addition there are displays showing the orders of chivalry from dozens of other countries. Situated on the South bank of the river Seine, the museum is opposite the entrance to the Musée d'Orsay. It's well worth a visit and entry is free.
