The Little(r) Museums of Paris

Join us for a discussion with Emma Jacobs and Jenny Kroik to celebrate the release of The Little(r) Museums of Paris, Emma Jacobs’ illustrated guide to the city’s hidden gems, and discover the city’s best kept-secrets, from artists’ studios to scientific museums.

A visit to Paris can often seem like a highlight reel – the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Eiffel Tower. But Paris isn’t all about these big touristic attractions; in fact, some might say it’s the offbeat destinations that hold the greatest treasures. Emma Jacobs’ charming illustrated guide takes you on a journey through these smaller destinations, from the fantastical to the bizarre, offering both a guide to the city and inspiration for armchair travelers. Each entry opens up a new world of adventure, with a description of the museum’s collection, a short history, watercolor illustrations, and even a miniature map.

In English. Free and open to the public. No RSVP necessary.
