Overview

A stone's throw from the city's most prestigious haute couture boutiques, the Musee Galliera is housed in a Renaissance-inspired palace. With its programme of temporary, themed exhibitions - legendary designers, fashion icons, clothing styles, influences and inspirations - the museum draws upon its priceless, often delicate archives to shine a light on the creative spirit which has inspired fashion from the eighteenth century right up to the present day. The museum has no permanent collections.

I thought "Anatomy" was sensitively done, exposing us to a more intimate view of history through the couture garments worn over the course of a few hundred years. It isn't an overly large collection, but it is a glimpse of the culture, economies and values...More

My wife had been looking forward to visiting this museum and was very disappointed. For 8€ it was small and less than average. I was never going to be a willing participant, but I went in as well. I could have done the lot in...More

This museum is so small, and the current exhibition doesn't contain many exhibits. There isn't a permanent exhibition in this museum. Between periods of different exhibitions, the museum is closed, so you need to check its website to see if there's currently an exhibition. The...More

I recommend - Museum and area are for lovers of good things and for visitors who look for a good rest. Classical old Architecture with statues and beautiful steel decor of the gate.

Nice building by itself, small garden. Bit hard to us found out where it was located (even with GPS) and main entrance. But we did it, not cheap but it worth to visit. Excellent exhibition of costumes - Napoleon, his wife Josephine, Grace Kelly and...More

I love fashion exhibitions, so I was very much looking forward to Anatomy of a Collection, this summer’s show at the Palais Galliera Musee de la Mode. Instead of showcasing a particular designer or period, they chose garments worn by significant people: an undergarment of...More

The clothes are remarkably restored and available to view closeup. I contrast this with the experience in some other museums (Victoria & Albert, Smithsonian) where too often the lighting and glass barriers or distance make a real view almost impossible. The garments on view from...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
