Very cool exhibits of Ancient Greek and Egyptian architecture. It’s free and all in French so make sure you brush up on your French. :). Either way, seeing the exhibits is still interesting even if you can’t read the plaques.
Great free museum that has a small collection of Greek and Roman antiquities.
