Full description
Get a glimpse into the turbulent history of the French Republic, with priority access to the Conciergerie. Originally built as a royal palace in the 14th century, the building became a prison when the royal family moved residence. During the French Revolution the prison was known as "the antechamber to the guillotine."
Explore the cells of criminals and the tombs of heroes of the French Revolution. Discover the chapel that was once the prison cell where Marie Antoinette was held. See the largest remaining medieval hall in Europe, the Salle des Gens d’Armes.

Choose to be accompanied by an histopad, and go back in time using this augmented reality tool. Explore the medieval rooms, as well as the spaces that have now disappeared.

From October 6, 2019 to January 26, 2020, discover the multiple imageries of Marie-Antoinette in the special exhibition, "Marie-Antoinette, Metamorphoses of an Image." The exhibition illustrates the many representations of Marie-Antoinette through almost 200 works, artifacts, historic and contemporary archives, never-before-seen interviews, film extracts, and fashion accessories, and shines a light on this worldwide phenomenon of media overkill through both a historic approach and a critical and comparative examination of forms.
