The Joy of Museums

Finding Beauty & Meaning in Museums

Masterpieces of the Musée National du Moyen Age

The buildings of the Musée National du Moyen Age are historic and masterpieces of Middle-Ages architecture in their own right. Within the Museum there are also treasures in sculptures and objects of the architectural decoration of many Parisian monuments such as:

  • Notre-Dame de Paris.
  • Abbey of Saint-Germain des Prés,
  • Sainte-Geneviève,
  • Saint-Denis,
  • Sainte-Chapelle du Palais de The city

The Musée National du Moyen Age contains many masterpieces of art and objects of historical significance. Below are just some of my favourites:
