Paris sewers museum, or Musée des égouts de Paris, is said to reopen by late, 2020. Renovations are said to provide us with a better tour experience, go and discover these novelties as soon as possible.

The musée des égouts de Paris is one of the museums reopening in 2020 like the Cernuschi museum and the Palais Galliera. Less glamorous than the fashion museum, the sewers museum is yet very interesting! Let’s meet later in 2020 to discover all the novelties available in this underground exhibition area.

Closed in July 2018 for works, the sewers museum has been renovated in depth. The museum is now able to welcome all publics. Handicapped persons are now able to come to the museum, as they couldn’t so far. The works also provide us with a better tour comfort. In addition to these renovations, the institution has thought the staging over and offers a rich museum-layout including modernized supports.

Educational boards and interactive screens now pace the tour. We observe a few ancient machines staged with skewer mannequins from different time eras. As a matter of fact, the museum makes us travel back in time: the installations can show us the time when Paris was Lutecia, in the Antiquity. The great historical periods that marked Paris are to be seen in the basement and you can visit them all in an hour.

The tour is rather uncommon but definitely worth it if you’re curious and a history fan! Brace yourself, because you’re going down as soon as the museum reopens this summer!
