Musée des Arts et Métiers

The Musée des Arts et Métiers is the french national museum of technological innovation, one of the oldest technical and industrial museums in the world.

The museum now hosts an exceptional collection, remarkable both for its size (nearly 80,000 objects and 15,000 drawings) and for the diversity of the themes covered. The visit of the museum offers a large exhibition, organized in seven sections (scientific instruments, materials, construction, communication, energy, mechanics and transport) and allows you to discover one of the most atypical places, the former priory of Saint-Martin-des-Champs having been consecrated by the French Revolution as a “temple” of technology.

Reopened in 2000 after a major renovation project, the Musée des Arts et Métiers offers an important cultural program, intended for a wide audience, in particular through its educational activities, conferences and temporary exhibitions, and has significant documentary resources in the fields of the history of techniques and industrial heritage.
