The National Museum of the Middle Ages is housed in two buildings classified as Historic Monuments: the Gallo-Roman Baths of North Lutetia (1st-2nd centuries) and the Hotel des Abbé de Cluny (end of the 15th century), to which is added a new reception by the architect Bernard Desmoulin, inaugurated in July 2018. The museum has one of the world’s largest collections of medieval art, including the famous hanging of the Lady with Unicorn.

Until spring 2021, the museum is engaged in a vast modernization project. The medieval hotel of Cluny and the courtyard are currently inaccessible and the museum will be entirely closed from 29 June 2020 to May 2021.

The Cluny museum, whose renovations are continuing, is once again hosting the Festival in the majestic space of the frigidarium, a jewel of ancient Paris whose vault culminates at 14 metres. This is a unique opportunity, for an evening in the heart of this ancient jewel, to immerse yourself, in exceptional conditions, in this encounter between jazz and dance for a magical and unexpected evening.
