did not really know about this museum until someone told me about it. its one of the nicest museums in Paris and well-located in Trocadero. Perhaps it is because it is new and not one of the must do's that it is not well travelled. But if you do have the time and especially the 1st sunday of the month when it is free - its a must - do. Also the views of the Eiffel tower and the cafe is great for a short visit.

Great public toilets, sometimes great exhibitions. Nice location. To expensive café with not the best quality. An amazing bookshop if you like architecture

A Parisian friend recommended this museum. It was everything she said and more. We loved the special exhibits, and enjoyed the regular ones as well. The sample le Corbusier flat was interesting.

Not sure why others weren't happy with the cafe. We had sandwiches and salads that were as good as what's served in many Parisian cafes. The staff was helpful and kind. One of our group didn't speak French, and the staff went out of their way to make her comfortable. The cafe has amazing views. This museum is worth a visit and return visits to catch new exhibits.

This museum across the river from the Eiffel Tower is well worth the time. It also has great views of the Eiffel Tower and a nice little cafe. We like different types of museums and this has full scale models of many Paris buildings so as you can imagine is really spacious and tall inside to fit these in. It was a very interesting museum.

The Trocadero overlooking the Eiffel Tower houses one of the greatest attractions in Paris. Known in English terms as the ''Architectural Museum'' this is a fantastic display of church edifices and architectural masterpieces dating back for centuries. Paris has museums for everything and this is one that you would probably not give a second thought to. I had a ''Paris Pass'' which included entry otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered, Believe me, it is terrific and you will be amazed at its content. 4 people visited with me and all said ''This is one of the best attractions here'' I agree. Give it a go you won't be disappointed. Great cafe also with a nice little courtyard overlooking the Eiffel Tower and Trocadero fountains. I don't think you have to pay to go in there so check it out, it's a nice break from the tourist throng outside.
