Musee National du Moyen Âge (Musee de Cluny)
It is located near the famous Sorbonne University and is one of the best examples of 15th-century architecture. The museum showcases armor, chests, ivories, mirrors, and hangings which were gathered by Alexandre du Sommerard to portray the Medieval ages and the Renaissance. There is a whole room depicting the most amazing pieces of art from the 16th Century, such as Dutch tapestries full of flowers and birds, a woman spinning while a cat plays with the end of the thread, and a pretty woman in her bath, overflowing into a duck pond. But the best exhibit is that of The Lady with the Unicorn tapestry, which features six inscrutable scenes of a beautiful woman flanked by a lion and a unicorn.
