Musée de Cluny – Positively Medieval

Visited this museum as part of a late Sunday afternoon activity with my beloved – and several things can be said about it: As a place that hosts quite an impressive collection of instructive views into the medieval past, something that vey few museums can offer on the scale of this national museum of the Middle Ages.

However for me – it transported me to childhood fairy tales, school plays: happy childhood memories! It transported me instantly to the world of Kings, Bishops, Queens, Knights … frogs that transform into Princes upon being kissed by beautiful, naive girls. For history buffs and the curious-minded lay person, it is also a fantastic Sunday afternoon visit. Even better, this would be a museum to get lost in during the week if one has a day off work or happens to be ‘ill’.
