Your culture attendant: things to do in Paris


TIME: 1-3 hours
The inventors of France - and Paris, in particular - have created some of the most innovative and beautiful technology over the last few centuries. With exhibits ranging from the tiny to the tremendously huge, see what made life easier (and what didn't, quite) at Paris's museum of innovations, the Musée des arts et métiers, just off the Rue Saint-Martin - and, on Thursdays, it's open free from 6pm to 9.30pm.
