Arranged in 1980 under the forecourt of Notre Dame de Paris cathedral to showcase the archaeological remains found during excavations carried out between 1965 and 1972, the Crypt offers a unique view on the urban and architectural evolution of the Ile de la Cité, the historic heart of Paris.
By discovering the buildings that have followed each other on the site, from antiquity to the twentieth century, the visitor goes back in time. Reviving the memory of one of the oldest districts of Paris, the Crypt shows how the city, for over two thousand years, has continued to rebuild on itself. In 2012, the museum of the Archaeological Crypt of the Notre Dame forecourt was completely renovated.
