The Sewer museum is closed until the Spring. I was aware of this before coming to Paris but thought it was worth double checking. We walked by there this afternoon. Would have been a fun thing to see. Oh Well, something for next time. Im...More

I really enjoyed it. Once you get over the smell, the stories of people escaping through the sewers and how they went about cleaning them are quite amusing. It is something different and well worth a visit.

I wanted to make this stop on our trip to Paris because we were traveling with teenage boys and I thought they would like it. I read all about it and we got all the way there. It closed this summer for renovations. Until 2019....More

I had always wanted to see the sewers of Paris, and was deflated to find today (July 8, 2018), that the museum area had closed a week ago on July 1. The sign says it will remain closed for improvements until sometime in 2019. The...More

Definitely a unique experience. Worthwhile stop and you do learn quite a bit as you walk through. Later that day I saw a sewer worker about to descend through a manhole wearing the outfit I had seen in the museum and I had more respect...More

It does smell, but it is a cool and relatively inexpensive stop for something of fun the beaten path. To get more out of it, you do have to stop and read quite a few placards, which may not be interesting for young kids. They...More

Not too many cities around the world turn the sewers into a tourist attraction, but then no other cities have a literary masterpiece set in them. Over the course of an hour or two you can learn the history of wastewater infrastructure in Paris whilst...More

No, no one got sick. It’s not much worse than a portapotty! Mostly a strong musky ammonia smell. The tunnels are cool, great for kids maybe 4th grade and up. The history and infrastructure is the draw for adults.
