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.

Best purchase for first time to Paris! I took my daughter to Paris for a graduation gift. The Paris pass was a lifesaver. We used it everyday, and was accepted for all public transportation. I would highly recommend it.

Phenomenal. Best value. Useful for all attractions and great for the Metro. Never had to worry about purchasing tickets. Great variety of attractions. Worth the price.
