6, place Paul Painlevé, 75005
Métro: St Michel (4) or Cluny la Sorbonne (10)
The Cluny is the unsung hero of Paris museums, and an oasis away from the tourist crowds. In the heart of the Latin Quarter, the remains of a Roman bath—one of the finest surviving examples of Roman architecture in the city—are joined to a Gothic Abbey. This historically hybrid building would be worth a visit for the architecture alone. But the fact that it also houses a stunning collection of art from a 1,000-year period of medieval history makes it a must-see museum.
On this tour you’ll see precious objects ranging from stained glass windows from nearby Sainte-Chapelle, to sculpted heads from the gallery of kings at Notre Dame Cathedral. Your guide will bring to life one of the Cluny’s most famous and enigmatic works of art, The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. In discovering this exceptionally rich period of European history, you will also learn about everyday life in medieval Paris.
Your guide will bring your tickets, and together you’ll use a priority access line to enter the museum. There may be a wait for the required security screening, however.

Wonderful Art History Tours
Had a wonderful tour of the Cluny Museum with ace guide Inge. Her explanations were fascinating. It’s great to have a guide for this less accessible area of art. I have had many excellent art history tours with Paris Muse, and I HIGHLY recommend them when you’re in Paris!
Worth every cent - invest in a Paris Muse tour (or 2)
Found out about this company via the Luxe guide to Paris (always spot on). So, for my last day in Paris, I took 2 tours with this great company - one focused on the Notre Dame and Cluny Museum and the other on the treasures of the Louvre. Both walking tours. Both led by fabulous, informed guides. I learned more, and enjoyed myself more than I have ever before. Intimate, sophisticated experiences.
Excellent Tour Service
We took four different tours with Paris Muse. Each tour guide was exceptionally knowledgeable, personable and attentive. There is no better way to tour in a foreign country than using a tour service. We would highly recommend Paris Muse.
