Musee des Arts et Metiers
This has been triumphantly renovated in a modern stone structure. One of the museums in Paris that houses over 80,000 objects relating to the history and practicality of science. They are on proper display, exquisitely restored and lovingly cared for by a passionate staff. While the place decidedly credits France with the greatest scientific achievements and doesn’t miss a beat when praising French scientists, there is a large breadth of objects in the collection from Renaissance Italy, to feudal China and Japan, to the US at the turn of the century.
