About the Museum

The Musée de Cluny, France's National Museum of the Middle Ages, is both a museum and archeological site located at the heart of Paris. It houses Gallo-Roman baths from the late 1st century as well as the town house of the abbots of Cluny dating from the 15th century. The museum is home to one of the best collections of medieval art in the world, and houses important pieces dating from antiquity to the Renaissance period. The collection has a rich selection of medieval sculpture, including works originally from Notre-Dame Cathedral and the Sainte-Chapelle. Among the museum’s most famous works are the six tapestries that comprise La Dame à la Licorne (The Lady with the Unicorn) dating from the 15th century.

The Musée de Cluny will reopen to the public on Saturday, July 14th, 2018 after 135 days of closure for restoration. For the reopening on Bastille Day, the museum admission will be free of charge.
