Just a few doors down from the Sorbonne, in the Latin Quarter, this museum is devoted to the Middle Ages, and has such treasures as the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries and illustrated manuscripts, including “The Ascension of Christ.” Adjacent to the museum—a rare example of late-15th-century Gothic architecture in Paris—you’ll find atmospheric ruins of the Roman baths, the best-preserved ancient site in Paris and a wonderful spot to take children to give them a sense of the city’s long history. Closed Tuesday.
