Stewart Museum, located on Ile Sainte-Helene new exhibit Paris during the 18th century
The famed Stewart Museum, located on Ile Sainte-Helene, has just opened a new exhibition that will take visitors back in time to Paris during the 18th century through more than 400 artifacts with “Paris on Display: 18th-Century Boutiques”, which will run until March 24, 2019.
The displayed items, which are owned by the Stewart Museum’s vast collection, recapture the fancy boutiques that were dotted across Paris during that period in history, and the commercial practices of the merchants who ran these boutiques, not to mention the high quality and range of merchandise that they sold to its pre-French Revolution customers.
From the boutiques of Paris’ three main districts (La Cite, La Ville and L’Universite), visitors will get an intimate, first-hand look at these French treasures, ranging from antique books, to decorative and historical objects, to prints, scientific objects and weapons.
Admission to the “Paris on Display: 18th-Century Boutiques” exhibition is $5, and will be open Wednesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until June 24, and Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from June 26 to September 2. And during the annual fireworks festival at La Ronde, the exhibition will be open on July 11 and 18, and August 1 and 8, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
