Good selection of artifacts -- carvings, paintings, ironwork, much of it from the Paleolithic period. Would have like to have more of the information available in English, or even an English language headset.

As a culture vulture and museum buff, I quite enjoyed the National archaeology museum housed in the lovely chateau in Saint Germain-en-Laye. Although I'm not an expert in prehistory, I liked seeing the numerous exhibits from the stone age, followed by the Iron age, Bronze...More

Magnificently restored and maintained building filled with tastefully exhibited artifacts chronologically arranged. Evidently a popular educational outing for school classes which made it difficult to see some of the areas. Also disappointing as well was that one floor was closed off so not the entire...More

This was part of our walking tour of Saint Germain-en-Laye. We went into the secured museum, not to see the exhibits, but just to see the restored exterior of the Chateau from the interior courtyard. What a beautifully restored building! We were so lucky that...More

As a museum, this seems a bit ho-hum, with many glass cases of carefully preserved and curated artefacts in room after room but, regrettably from the viewpoint of foreign visitors, no foreign explanations. However, if you are interested, then it is worthwhile paying the admission...More

Builders operating noisy irritating equipment, staff being driven out of their minds by the racket. They still charge full admission despite the dust and noise. It's a bit of an affront don't you think? There's a fascinating German WW2 bunker at the Paris end of...More

The Archaeology Museum is well worth the visit as it is one of the few Museums we have come across that expands the eras from pre-neolithic to the Iron Age sequentially and under one roof. It was a shame there were no audio guides or...More

On a cold, rainy Sunday afternoon in St Germain en Laye there isn't loads to do so given we live a few minutes away we went for a look around. Interesting way to spend a few hours learning all about the history on mankind.
