Journées du Patrimoine : 2. The Musée des Moulages

My second recommendation is an extraordinary experience, but certainly not one that will be for everybody! The Musée des Moulages Dermatologiques (museum of dermatological casts) within the walls of the Hôpital St Louis is a very private museum and generally open only to students and those working in the medical profession. If truth be told it is rather gruesome, but with fascinating historical and artistic qualities!

For more information, read the post I wrote after my visit last year.

Hopital Saint Louis
1 Avenue Claude-Vellefaux, 75010
Note: the museum is only open on the Sunday (19th) from 10am - 6pm
