Have you ever visited Paris Archeological Crypt? Set under Notre-Dame de Paris, this crypt unveils the remains of the baths of the 4th century, a part of a wall from the antique Lutecia, as well as the remains of the former hospice for Found-Children built in 1750…
Mysterious place, often taken for the Paris Catacombs, this historic place is finally rather unknown by Parisians. Since 2014, the Crypt has been presenting 3D recreations of the French capital through the centuries, enabling us to understand and better grasp the geographical spread of the city. You can even follow the development of the works of the Notre-Dame Cathedral on touch screens suiting all members of the family!
By the way, following the fire of the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo also announced an exhibition about Notre-Dame de Paris is currently being prepared and will be displayed at the Paris Archeological Crypt (under Notre Dame).
For this Museums Night 2019, the crypt thought up a wonderful program but is said to remain closed, still in the waiting for the official authorization from the Police Headquarters to open.
