The purpose of this paper is to explore the reason why Parisian museums are in previously contracted buildings rather than creating a structure for them upon their creation. Looking at the examples of the Musée de Cluny, Musée du Louvre, and the Musée d’Archéologie National. Upon examining these cases, it is evident that Paris had a vacancy of buildings that allowed to put its buildings into previously constructed former noble residences. Drawing on the collections and timing of the creation of the museums creates the clear differences between the cohort cities of London and Paris.
