Known as Musée de Cluny, this museum holds six spectacular tapestries called The Lady and the Unicorn.
The building itself combines both Gothic and Renaissance elements. It was built around 1485 and converted into a museum after the death of Alexandre du Sommerard, a French archaeologist and a collector of art.
Apart from the famous tapestries, the museum presents many other significant medieval artifacts. It has both temporary and permanent exhibitions, so make sure to check out the official website for what's currently happening in the establishment.
It also hosts concerts, exhibitions, readings and workshops. Its gardens are also worth visiting, they are open to public and free of charge.
