From September 26, 2023 to January 14, 2024

Unlock the secrets of fascinating rock crystal at the Musée de Cluny

The ‘Journey into Crystal’ exhibition, which runs from 26 September 2023 to 14 January 2024 at the Musée de Cluny, sheds light on rock crystal, which has always been a source of fascination due to its transparency. It presents the various aspects of quartz and its many uses, particularly in aesthetics, and reveals its use in science, notably in optics, and in spiritual objects. The exhibition, which is both chronological and thematic, brings together more than 200 craft and art objects from prehistory to the present day, half of which date from the Middle Ages, and helps visitors to unravel the uses and beliefs associated with quartz.
From 9.30 am to 6.15 pm. From 9.30am to 9pm on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. Closed on Mondays, 25 December and 1 January.
From €10 to €12
