Our Insiders' Article


France has a great heritage of fine architecture, from the Roman churches to the beautiful carved details of the Gothic period. Instead of travelling all over France to get a glimpse of those architectural wonders, just head to the Trocadéro and enter the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine.

It is rare to find a museum with a collection of objects that is so overwhelming and impressive. Why? Because we are not talking about small models of architectural highlights, but real life-size moldings. A walk through the halls of the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine is like walking all over France in just over 2 hours.


The Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine comprises of 3 floors. The ground floor showcases the moldings of the most famous architectural highlights throughout the centuries. Most of the first floor, smaller than the ground floor, is mostly dedicated to modern architecture while the top floor is entirely about stained glass windows and mural paintings.

You won’t need to worry about long lines here as this is not a mainstream museums. Take the audio-guide if you want to have in depth information.

Ground Floor

The highlights are basically what you will see on each floors:

The life-size moldings of architectural gems found in France, featured in a chronological order, from the 12th to the 20th century. You will even find moldings of Parisian iconic monuments such as details of Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle and even the Arc de Triomphe.

The architectural projects that have marked the 20th century, from housing concepts to urban districts such as La Défense.

The replicas of some of the most beautiful mural paintings, generally found in churches around France, exposed in dimmed lights to imitate their natural setting (church chapels generally).

First Floor

Temporary exhibitions are also proposed at the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine. While most of them take place in a special hall located on the basement floor, it does happen that temporary items mingle with the permanent collection. For example, recent artworks have been exposed in the Stained Glass Windows and Mural Paintings Gallery, therefore intriguingly combining old and new. On the 2nd floor is where you will find the kids workshops: special activities in French are proposed on Wednesdays, Saturdays and holidays at 3:30pm for children, which last about 1.5 hours and cost 8€.

Second Floor

The snack bar is a great place to get something to eat and drink before or after the visit to the museum. With a trendy style of red and white colors, the bar offers a nice view on the Eiffel Tower.

One could think that the Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine is really for architectural buffs, but this is a wrong guess. It is an ideal place where everyone should go, kids included. The sheer grandeur of the main hall and the moldings are simply astonishing and will definitely stir up the curiosity of even the least interested in ancient and modern architecture.
