The stunning view of Paris and the popularity of the tower itself led many wealthy Frenchmen to offered Gustave substantial sums of money to spend the night in this apartment. However he did not want this because he was using it for personal needs, and occasionally he brought along respected people like famous inventors.

Nowadays, any tourist who pays to visit the highest third of the Eiffel Tower has this former privilege. In 2015 the apartment was transformed into a mini-museum, which can be visited shortly during the visit.

In the apartment library, the visitors are now able to see old books, authentic furniture from the end of the 19th century, but also wax figures of Gustave Eiffel, his daughter Clara and his close friend Thomas Edison.
