An Architectural Adventure

Uniting today's urban architecture with France's cultural heritage, Cité de l'Architecture invites visitors to take a journey through the history of France's architecture, dating back to the 12th century. This spacious, classic gallery built in the 1930's exhibits about 350 plaster-cast reproductions of the greatest gems of French architecture, including partial facades of Gothic churches, massive carved doors, and even the famous curved 16th-century staircase to the organ loft at St-Maclou church in Rouen. Stained glass windows of the Chartres cathedral adorn the venue as gargoyles practically leap off the back wall of the soaring first-floor gallery room. An interactive room filled with video monitors and games also provides children with a fun space to learn about French architecture and cultural history.
