Funciona en dos palacios declarados Monumentos Históricos, el Hotel Carnavalet y Le Peletier de Saint-Fargeau, en el corazón de le Marais. Es el Museo de Historia de la Ciudad de París. Cuenta con una enorme colección de pinturas, esculturas, objetos y muebles entre otros. Subiendo una hermosa escalera se accede a la Galería de Carteles Comerciales donde se puede ver por ej. La Cruz de Oro cartel de un vendedor de vinos en el 54 de la rue Saint André-des-Arts. O el carte del Cerrajero Filliol. También hay carteles identificatorios de las calles parisinas con sus números. Uno puede retrotraerse y ver un París muy antiguo. Hay un plano muy llamativo de París entre 1632 y 1641. Y también objetos de la historia reciente. También cuenta con pantallas interactivas que hacen más dinámica la visita. El restaurante ubicado en un parque muy lindo.
