Musée Carnavalet to close for major renovation in October

The beautiful and beloved Carnavalet museum of the history of Paris has started undergoing a major renovation and many galleries are closed at present. In October the Carnavalet is scheduled to close until 2020 for a major renovation of its heating, cooling and lighting systems, along with other efforts to stabilize this Renaissance era mansion and to enhance the visitor experience of the various collections.

The Carnavalet is a major draw in the Marais.  Fortunately the Picasso has re-opened after its renovation and the Cognac Jay are open.  The Center for European Photography, the Jewish Museum remain open, as is the Museum of the 'Chasse' or the Hunt.

And that is just in the Marais.
