    Very good article and great pictures . The only mistake is early on when it states that the collection is not open to the public. Thankfully it is. i went around the Conservatoire a couple of months ago after making an appointment by email. Sad thing was I was the only person visiting.

    I think the appropriate saying is "Priceless"

    Can you tell me what email you made the visit request to? I have emailed and no response, I guess they may be on holiday. I thought they only did group tours, would be good to get an answer from them as keen to go in August.

    It is well worth a visit. Mrs UFO and I have actually been there twice.

    If you're staying in Paris and without a car (wise), then the easiest way to get there is to catch the RER train to Gare de Villepinte then get a taxi or have a long walk. There is a pic/screen shot below. Note the left red circle is actually the Conservatoire. The karting club title is a mystery.

    It's about a 40 to 50 min RER ride from Montparnasse. This is also the line that serves Roissy-en-France (aka CDG).

    The cab fare should be fairly reasonable. It may be worth having instructions in French or a print of a map to show the cabby as the existence of the Conservatoire is a mystery to some. For your return journey the staff might phone you a taxi.

    Note: they do close for French school holidays, which can be at different times in different parts of the country. Couldn't get to visit for this reason on my last trip.

    Sounds like my experiences trying to get into C42. Been outside it 3 times but never inside. Yes once was at midnight whilst the vintage Renault bus we were in was crawling its way through Saturday night traffic, but the last time was a normal day. It was closed for an exhibition change and re-opened the day after we left Paris.
