Carnavalet Museum Accessibility

  Carnavalet Museum Disabled Access – The Carnavalet Museum describes the history of Paris.  Most of it is not accessible.  There is no elevator to the upper floor and part of the ground level has steps to get through.

Because Carnavalet Museum disabled access is poor and it is located away from the other Parist tourist sights, I recommend passing up a visit here.  A better alternative to see a layout of the city and understand it’s history is one of the accessible Paris boat tours.
