Trip Planner: Europe / France / Ile-de-France / Yvelines / Saint-Germain-en-Laye / Musee d'Archeologie Nationale
Musee d'Archeologie Nationale is a royal palace first built by Louis VI and currently houses the magnificent National Museum of Archaeology. You can view secrets of prehistory, the Iron Age, and Gaul within an old-fashioned château, a long-time grand residence of the Kings of France. As you continue outside, garden terraces offer an amazing view of greater Paris.
The museum exhibits around 30,000 archaeological objects, making it one of the most magnificent collections in Europe, and these objects are divided into seven collections. When you’re finished here, the Saint-Louis chapel, which adjoins the château, is not to be missed. It is a masterpiece of classic gothic architecture. Our Saint-Germain-en-Laye route maker makes visiting Musee d'Archeologie Nationale and other Saint-Germain-en-Laye attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Housed in an imposing historical Castle, this Museum is dedictated to covering archeological discoveries in France from the prehistoric age to the Middle Ages. It is under extensive renovations...

I almost gave four stars for the potential that is in the collection. This is a museum that badly needs a refresh. It probably has not been updated in decades. It was once called the Museum of...

Brilliant Sunday afternoon out. Fantastic views across the castle gardens, La Defense visible on the horizon. Lots to see and do. Resting place of King James VII of Scotland (II of England) in a building adjacent to the Chateaux- beautiful plaque on display in the outside wall of building (see photos). Recommend highly for a visit 🤗
Beautiful town, peaceful and quaint. People were nice and cafes so full of energy. I loved watching the happy people take their time to spend together! Noone sat inside but enjoyed the weather outdoors - it was picturesque!
What a beautiful château! This is where Louis XIV was born and lived until he moved to Versailles! Great look off from the gardens. This is not a Château that you can visit inside, except for the museum part and the interior court. Still worth the ride there! While you are there, visit the archeology museum, which is where the world archives are! Fantastic museum :)
With its wonderful large garden it is a real haven of peace. The International School in the neighborhood gives it the international flavor I adore, you can hear all kinds of languages 🙂. It gives an « aire » of holiday all year long. A parc with class
Those castle is gorgeous and has got an archeology museum really well done. There is also another exhibition that change every few months. It's inside the city next to a huge part with playground and next to the exit of RER A. Also beside bar and restaurants. Perfect place with a perfect location and a view of Paris from the edge of the garden. Really recommend to visit.
