French poet and novelist Victor Hugo lived on my favorite square, Place des Vosges, from 1832 to 1848. His home was transformed into a museum that’s almost like a time capsule, with original wallpaper, Gothic furniture, and thousands of handwritten letters. I love imagining what it must have felt like to live in Paris in the 19th century! The museum has free entry so you don’t need to feel obligated to stay and browse for hours. Just take in the areas that interest you most.
Place des Vosges. Little but very kind Park, surrounded by very old and beautifull style bulding, located in Le Marais, mostly the most interesting area in Paris. Very touristic by the way, so more expensive...right in front of the park, The Victor Hugo's house.
“A famous museum in the Marais. Even if you don't go, it is a nice ballade to the museum from home. It walks you through the Marais, it nice boutique and ancient hotel particuliers.”
“Free-entry Holocaust museum & memorial with photographs, documents & multi-media displays.”
“This might be my favorite museum in paris, it has just been renovated and you get to lear everything about paris wether it’s politics, art, geography, history…”
