Discover National Archaeology Museum, Saint-Germain-en-Laye France

The Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye has been home to the National Archaeology Museum (the former Museum of National Antiquities) since the Second Empire. Its extremely elaborate collections bear witness to man's industrial and agricultural activity in France, from pre-history through to Charlemagne. The famous Dame de Brassempouy, a Paleolithic masterpiece of great elegance and finesse, is particularly worth a visit.
