Venue Info

A museum dedicated to smoking? Well, this is Paris, after all. Smoking inside only became illegal here 10 years ago, and cigarettes are still very much a part of the city -- and its sidewalks. This quaint museum documents all of these changes (including the slow rise of electronic cigarettes). Opened in 2001, the gallery features plenty of artifacts and information to interest even the most ardent non-smoker. And don’t worry -- unlike its subject, this museum doesn’t cause cancer or reduce your sperm count.
