The Sewers of Paris Museum is a fascinating, and unusual museum which explores the famous sewer system of Paris. Home of gothic arches and tunnels and to a thousand stories, the Musée des Égouts de Paris is a fantastic journey into history, engineering and adventure.

Sometime around 1200 the city streets were paved and a central drain was placed down the middle. In 1370 the first stone walled sewer was built in rue Montmartre. This sewer collected the wastewater and took it to a brook.

Under Napoleon things began to get interesting beneath Paris with a network of vaulted tunnels that stretched to 30km. It was only in 1850 though that baron Haussmann, the prefect for the Seine, and the engineer Eugéne Belgrand, designed the present Parisian sewer and water supply networks.

The Musée des Égouts de Paris provides a fascinating insight into the unique sewer system of Paris, which has almost 2,100 km of tunnels and really is a Paris beneath Paris. Paris Pass holders can visit this rare museum for FREE.

It was a great decision to buy the Paris Pass and I recommend it to others. The Paris Pass was very useful to our enjoyment of Paris. We used it daily and went to some places that we probably wouldn't have chosen or known about if we had not had it. Paying for all of this in advance freed us from having to constantly purchase tickets, exchange money and carry a lot of cash. We felt it was a good value and so easy to use. My advice, purchase a Paris Pass to enhance your visit.

I wasn't sure when we purchased the Paris Pass that we would get our money's worth out of it. Boy, was i wrong! We saw more of Paris because we had the Paris Pass than we would have otherwise. Just being able to hop on and hop off the bus whenever we wanted, not to mention the boat trip, and the many attractions that were free because we had the pass. It made our trip to Paris more enjoyable and memorable.
