Location: The Musée de Cluny is in the 5th arrondissement, on the Left Bank of the Seine. (See Google's satellite-photo map.) It's just south of the Boulevard Saint-Germain, near the Cluny-La Sorbonne Métro stop. (Other transit stations within walking distance include the St-Michel, Odéon, and Maubert Métro stops and the St-Michel RER station.)

Directions: If you're exiting the Métro at Cluny-La Sorbonne, walk east to the Rue de Cluny, turn right, walk south about a block to the Place Paul-Painlevé, and turn right again.

Cluny Museum entrance signThe museum entrance is inside the courtyard of the former abbey. Look for the banner on the building (shown at top of page), and then follow the arrow sign in the courtyard to the ticket office.
