The Archaeological Museum of Saint-Germain-Leon is located in Paris. It was originally the Royal Palace. On the ground floor, there are models showing the magnificent scene of the heyday! The garden is very quiet, inside is the National Archaeological Museum, and there is also a chapel from the Louis IX period.
The museum is a very imposing castle with a beautiful red brick color and the building itself is very beautiful. The museum's collection has a very interesting archeological collection. It is a bit farther away and needs to sit on RER, suitable for a weekend visit.
The St Germain Leon Museum is well worth a visit as it is one of the few museums we have encountered, extending the ages from the Neolithic to the Iron Age, and the museum also has a huge fireplace with only a few rooms open every day So maybe the exhibits you see every day are different.
This museum is in the Old Castle of St Germain, originally a defensive fortification built by Louis VI (1124), destroyed during the hundred years of war, and rebuilt by Charles V of Charles V, after the restoration of 29 kings. What is now seen is a Renaissance-style castle, which was commissioned by François I to build by the architect Pierre • Pierre Chambiges, and retains the Gothic chapel built by St. Louis. Napoleon III commissioned architect Eugene Millet to create the "Celtic Gaul － Roman Archaeological Museum", which now houses a collection of human activity on French soil for almost a million years (until the early Middle Ages). It houses the world's largest prehistoric art exhibit and European archeology collection, as well as the famous "Dame de Brassempouy" statue and nearly three million other exhibits.
The outsiders seem to be more interested in the appearance of the building than the exhibits.
