Since 2007, the Cité de l’Architecture highlights a wonderful collection of models, fortified city maps, pieces of forgotten buildings, stained-glass windows and the monument itself, vestige of the Musée de Sculpture Comparée open in 1882.
Among the major pieces of the collection, we have the painted ceiling of the cupola from the Cathédrale de Cahors (14th century), a model of Notre-Dame de Paris, as well as the recreation to scale 1 of one of the dwelling unit from the Cité Radieuse built by Le Corbusier in Marseilles in 1952 and the model of the Gare du Nord.
