This fascinating French museum
shows exhibits that include old drawings, plans and engravings, which reveal the mysteries
and various development stages of the Notre Dame
Situated in the 4 Arrondissement of Paris there are
also documents that testify to the great historical events that occurred at this famous Paris monument in the many years gone by and some of
these include the history of the bishops and archbishops who have marked its past.
It was actually the history of the Notre Dame
cathedral that inspired Victor Hugo to
write his famous novel, the Hunchback of Notre-Dame, but this museum was not founded until
1951, where we can all learn more about its history and facts
of Notre Dame with ease.
The Musee de Notre Dame de Paris also recounts life in the City from Lutecia before it was
known as Paris and is only one street away from the cathedral itself, so is a great place
to discover more about the history of this famous landmark
Plus, you can get to view the original Notre
Dame Cathedral organ along with the music scores, notes and some personal articles
that are on display from Vierne who was the main key organist.
The Musee de Notre Dame de Paris is open from 2.30pm through to 6pm on a Wednesday,
Saturday and Sunday and the nearest Metro station is the Cite, but is definitely not hard
