Musée des Egouts de Paris, Paris

Musée des Egouts de Paris, Paris

Le Musée des Égouts de Paris, or the Paris Sewer Museum, is dedicated to the sewer system of Paris. Tours of the sewage system have been popular since the 1800s and are currently conducted at the sewers. Visitors are able to walk upon raised walkways directly above the sewage itself. The entrance is near the Pont de l'Alma. It may be out of sight and doesn't have the best location, but the exhibits you can find there are just wonderful, especially if you are familiar with Victor Hugo's Les Miserables. The sewer network dates back to the year of 1850. You can also watch a brief movie and take a quick tour of the maze of sewer pipes.
