The Musee Carnavalet, founded in 1888, has now reopened after remaining closed for five years. After renovations worth 55 million euros, the museum is back in the spotlight. As France is on the verge of maturing for foreign travelers, the museum decided to reopen on May 29. Known for exhibits related to the history of Paris, the museum is housed in two old buildings.
Visitors will be delighted to learn that the museum offers a great combination of artifacts and attractions related to the history of the city.
Lovers of literature will be happy to see furniture that once belonged to Marcel Proust, and lovers of history will be delighted with items that belonged to Marie Antoinette. The museum is truly one of the best places to explore the history of Paris. After all, the city has been a center of mass culture for so long.
Musee Carnavalet closed in 2016 and reopens five long years later. After renovations, the museum now has enough space to house an ever-growing collection. The museum now has a circular route in chronological order, and it has been redesigned so that more light penetrates from the outside. The basement has also been renovated and now houses collections from the Mesolithic to the Renaissance.
