  1. “Inside the Musee Carnavalet are the relics of historical Paris. Among the many treasures to be found are fragments of ancient monuments, memorabilia from the French Revolution, stained glass windows from churches that are no longer standing, ornate iron signage, paintings and drawings depicting Parisian life throughout the ages, and rooms elaborately furnished in styles that reflect each era.The buildings themselves, and the courtyard within, are a glimpse into life here in the 17th century. Sit in the courtyard and imagine listening to the rustle of silk taffeta and the murmurs of genteel ladies, as Madame de Sévigné, who lived here in the 17th century, and her friends strolled in the garden.”
