“What a great museum”

La Maison Europeenne de la Photographie
Ranked #185 of 1,242 things to do in Paris
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 December 2012

Of course it will depend on what's currently showing but this museum runs several exhibits at once and they seem to be generally very well done. The building itself is interesting and a little bit rambling inside, the neighborhood is great--relatively quiet, quaint and off the beaten track enough that it is not hugely crowded but easy to get to. If photography is of any interest to you, this museum is well worth an hour of your vacation time.

current exhibition on Susan Paulsen on Wilmot, Arkansas is fascinating insight into family, small town southern US. Paired with this is a reasonably extensive chronology of French photography from 1950 - 2000 and an intriguing installation of Sarah N - prolific teenage self portraits. Always worth a visit

I guess this will vary depending on when you go, but when I visited, I was blown away by almost EVERY exhibition (and there are a lot of them). The ticket was worth way more than the 4€ I paid for it (student ticket). I saw Claude Nori, Alice Springs and plenty other brilliant photographers. The exhibition is set up really well so you don't accidentally miss anything. And there is a nice café with a table of brownies that look as if they're for taking, but you have to pay for them. Enjoy!

The location is perfect, the building is elegant and interesting but the overall experience will depend a lot on the exhibition you visit. I just loved the Alice Springs exhibition. Still there were too many small exhibitions and it was a bit overwhelming for me. ..

A lovely surprise - elegant old building with many display floors - the video installations (esepecially La Bas) in the basement were exceptional. The current exhibition of Paolo Pellegrin was outstanding but sobering
