Trip Report The Musée national de la Marine in Paris

Jump to last reply

While my wife went "on safari" in Galleries Lafayette, I spent a rainy afternoon at Paris' Musée national de la Marine at the Palais de Chaillot, along with hundreds of school children. There is a sortie from the Trocadero metro station just a few yards from the entrance.

This is a surprisingly-large museum, with elaborate, often quite large models of historic French ships, more standard models of French Naval ships from all generations, artifacts from ships, paintings of ships and naval battles, sculptures of sea-related mythological figures, etc. Anyone interested in naval matters would like it.

There is also a special exhibit on the "basement" level showing the works of Mathurin Méhrut, a prolific painter, sculptor, decorator, ceramicist, etc. of enormous versatility. If I understand the description correctly, he had something to do with the conversion of this large wing of the building into a maritime museum after the 1937 International Exhibition in Paris.

There is an English-language audio guide to the permanent exhibits and maybe one for the Méhrut one as well.
