Love free stuff, especially in Paris. The majority of the rooms with the permanent collection are being renovated, but there is still much to see. A gallery exhibiting the works of Derain, Balthus, and Giacometti. For one visit it was definitely enough to see! No...More

The mural on the top floor of the permanent display in the museum is well worth the visit, tracing famous scientist through history, and getting close to changes that have happened. The lower floor has some very interesting paintings showing different techniques and letting the...More

It was our third time in Paris so we had already visited the Louvre, Orsay, etc. This museum is different and fresh... and the entrance is free (for the permanent part).

I love modern art, however my experience was left a little bewildered and it wasn't the art. I read that the permanent display was free and you paid for the temporary exhibits. Sounds easy enough. Well we tried to figure out where our temporary exhibit...More

Creative, abstract, breathtaking, simple and great, paradoxical, crazy and intriguing - these and much more adjectives can be used to describe this " Medusa" exhibition! Loved it!

Foolishly thinking a museum would be a good spot to escape the 28 degree heat, we visited the museum for the first time. The Medusa exhibition was fascinating but the locale was sweltering hot which made it impossible to enjoy or concentrate on the viewing....More

A wonderful Karrel Appel exhibit with very few visitors was outstanding. A very good presentation and overview of his works, really well done! The remainder of the museum is terrific. I was totally alone in the rooms that have Matisse's dancer murals. A very special...More

I didn't get inside, but it is a big museum. The front is nice, but didn't impress me at all. It's easy to find and to access by public transport - jump in "Alma/Marceau" subway station.

Upon arrival at an invitation-only opening we were not allowed entry by the security lads at the door and subsequently were caught in a queue in the rain. However, once we were allowed to enter, the museum proved to be quite open and bright. The...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
