HISTORY OF PARIS
The Musée Carnavalet is the museum of the history of Paris.
It was founded in 1866 during the often destructive modernization of Paris launched by Napoleon III and Baron Haussmann to preserve -paradoxically – elements of Parisian architecture and historic interiors saved from demolition.
The museum re-opened in 2021 after five years of extensive renovations with vastly expanded premises for its collections and an entirely new underground section.
