Pushing the massive wooden door of the Cluny Museum is entering in a unique building that gathers in the heart of Paris: the Gallo-Roman baths of Lutèce built at the end of the 1st century by the Romans and a monastery built at the end of the 15th century.

The museum collections offer a rich panorama on Art history. You may admire the world-famous tapistries representing the Lady with the Unicorn, the medieval statuary of the Notre Dame Cathedral as well as the stained-glass windows of the Sainte-Chapelle or the Golden altar of Basel. These are only some of the masterpieces preserved here. Since its foundation, the Museum continually  enriches its acquisitions.

We’ll decrypt together the dial located in the courtyard with this mysterious inscription “Nothing without us”?
