The Bibliothèque-Musée de l'Opéra National de Paris is a library and museum of the Opéra National de Paris, located in the IXe arrondissement at 8, rue Scribe, Paris, France. It is no longer an organ of the Opera National de Paris, but instead part of the music department of the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF). It is open daily; an admission fee is charged. The museum is housed within the Palais Garnier, and displays three centuries of the Parisian opera's history through paintings, drawings of scenery and costumes, and scale models.
