Musee Carnavalet: A Fireplace in Every Room

From "DK Eyewitness Travel Top 10 Paris".

"Devoted to the history of Paris, this museum sprawls through two mansions, the 16th-century Carnavalet and the 17th-century Le Peletier de Sevigne. The former was the home of Madame de Sevigne, the famous letter-writer from 1677 to 1696 and a gallery here portrays her life."

The museum, at least the sections open to the public during our visit, contains period rooms filled with art and portraits. And that what 8 focus on in this post.

Three bonus point for this off-the-beaten-path attraction.
1. It's within easy walking distance from our apartment.
2. No waiting in line.
3. Free admission.

OK, well just about every room.
