Musée des Égouts de Paris
The first sewer system in Paris was constructed way back in 1370, and it has grown since then to accommodate the city's more than 2 million inhabitants. Finding out about the complex works involved is an original way to understand the city. There is an exhibition area, where machinery and models that were used in bygone times, as well as the ones that are used now, are on display. There is also an audio-visual show.
