Un Musee Gratuit pour tous

The interior in one of the lower ground corrider in Musee Carnavalet

Great news starting this 4th April!
For all below the age of 26, you can now enjoy free museum visits in Paris. It covers MOST of the big museums; Musee du Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Musee l'Orangerie, Musee du Picasso Oh the list are endless.

This list has most of the museums in Paris.

Entering to one of the alleways on the second floor.

So today I started with Musee Carnavalet in the Marais district, just around the corner from Places des Vosges. My french professeur has been bragging about it in class. Each floor is dedicated to specific French era. Art Nouveau, Romantique, Belle Epoque and French Revolution. A small museum tucked in between pretty French boutiques, it is quite easy to miss. But inside you are transform to different places in history. A calm visit.

In Belle Epoque, this room has all the walls plastered in scenes depicting grey clouds and strange looking people. The red is so French though. So dramatic.

Yes she would be me if I was living in the 19th Century. By George Croegaert.

Saw this fellow a few times already, this one was on Rue de Vaugirard, 6eme.

After walking for three hours straight since lunch, my head was about to explode in the sun.
So lets continue with the museum visits tomorrow okay. And let's try to keep it relax.
