Paris Sewer Museum (Musée des Égouts de Paris) Tours

Paris Sewer Museum (Musée des Égouts de Paris)
Please note: The Paris Sewer Museum (Musée des Égouts de Paris) is currently closed for renovations. The reopening is scheduled for early 2020. 

A mind-boggling network of tunnels stretching for 2,100 kilometers beneath the French capital; the sewers of Paris are one of the most unique and impressive sewage systems in the world. The city’s first underground sewer dates back as early as 1370, but the innovative system still in place today started life in 1850, the masterwork of engineer Eugène Belgrand. The vast underground sewers now mirror the city streets above ground, and the tunnels serve not only as waste removal channels, but as host to the city’s water mains, telecommunication cables and traffic light cables. 

Somewhat bizarrely, the Paris sewers have also served as a popular tourist attraction ever since the 19th and 20th century, when boat and wagon rides would whisk visitors on a tour of the city’s murky underworld. Today, a section of the sewers remains open to visitors beneath the Pont de l’Alma and tours offer the chance to explore the tunnels, and learn about the engineering marvel at the adjoining Paris Sewer Museum. 

Practical Info

The Sewers of Paris are located beneath the city, with visits taking place in the section around the Pont de l’Alma on Paris’ Left Bank. Visits are by guided tour only. 
Address: Paris 75007, France
