There are about 15 museums in Paris that
have free admission, and the Musée Carnavalet
is one of my faves. This former home of
Mme de Sévigny has been open as a
museum since 1880. What I like best
here are the room re-creations, from a
15th-century drawing room to
Marcel Proust's cork-lined bedroom.
