Located in the Palais Chaillot is the French architectural heritage museum that showcases its development through the ages. The galleries des Moulages houses models of great French cathedrals and is a very interesting experience.

The ground floor holds over 300 castings, most life-size, of architectural treasures from all over France, with an emphasis on fabulous, flamboyant gothic. I had a ''Paris Pass'' which included entry otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered, Believe me, it is terrific and you will...More

I very much enjoyed this. The quality and attention to detail is impressive. This clearly shows the huge amount of work the French have put into their national heritage. The 3D cut models of the buildings were especially interesting. There are many life-size models of...More

My husband and I both enjoyed this museum. My husband is an architect-want-a-be liked all of the architect models. I enjoyed being up close to the various statues and church structures. It was also fun to look out and see the Eifel Tower.

I didn’t have enough time to explore this museum very well. I visited a special exhibition and the regular collection of plaster casts of French medieval building decorations. What a treat! I had studied medieval architecture many moons ago, and it was a thrill to...More

I was very sad to have wasted my time here. This museum is something to see if you live here or have visited so much all the big stuff is off your list. Don't waste your time if time is precious.

This is a must for the Paris traveler, we came at night at about 9pm and got a fantastic spot to see the illumination of the Eiffel Tower. It’s amazingly beautiful and with most things Parisian there is a sense of romance🙂❤️
