Le Musee des Arts et des Metiers

After figuring out how to lock up my luggage (lockers are located downstairs near platform 3), I walked over to one of the museums included on my museum pass. This museum focused on the history of industry and technology in France. Inside I found numerous Morse code machines, antique measuring tools, looms, old cars, and robots. The section on transport had a unique display with items suspended inside a beautiful church. All placards in this museum were in French, but there was an audio guide that I didn’t purchase including one for kids. It would not be top of my list to return, but it might be interesting if you were curious about industrial history.
