7th Arrondissement Museum Gift Shops

THANK YOU PBERS for attending my Color-Friday Sale! What a lovely turnout. Your watercolors are in the post along with the November map as of Monday. This map is focused on museums of the 7th arrondissement. I know everyone rushes to the Louvre and d'Orsay, but the wealthy 7th Paris is flush with excellent small museums offering unique Christmas gifts (if you're not sending letters from Paris)...

Haven't you always wanted a statuette of Marianne on your desk?

Or a coffee mug announcing you are president for those who may think otherwise?

Red, white and blue gifts for all ages at the boutique for l'Assemblé.

For those with delusions of grandeur

Or a Napoleon complex the 7th arrondissement is definitely the place to go.

You could cover your tree with Napoleons, gold eagles and the Royal crest.

The ethnic musée Branly has a large separate boutique beside the main building.

The Branly is an unusual space to explore with an exotic collection.

And the gift shop reflects the collections in depth.

Outside a glorious holiday lightshow.

Just on the border of the 7th is the don't miss Musée de la Monnaie just by the Pont Neuf.

They make all the coins of the realm plus for many other countries.

Does someone you know deserve a medal? This is the place to come.

Along wih their outstanding coin collection they feature single artist exhibit. British artist, Grayson Perry is on view at the moment. They stay open late on Wednesdays. After you've collected your medals and rare coins, come out and get your socks knocked off by the luminous Pont Neuf.Thanks for reading Parisbreakfast. If you'd like to receive Parisbreakfast watercolors, letters 💌, and mapin your mailbox, check out my Etsy shop.
