This show is open every day from 10-6 and on Fridays and Saturday nights, it's open until 10 pm. The show is in the middle of the 11th Arr. in an old foundry at 38 Saint-Maur, so it is not easy to get to, but...More

An extraordinary way to experience art. Klimt and Hundertwasser in new dimensions. New technologies make it possible to enjoy art differently. Certainly also for non art lovers to get the taste. Certainly also a fun educational experience for children.

We pre-purchased tickets to the venue which allowed us to go straight through into the show. It is a large building with bare walls where various pieces of art is projected on the walls and floor and beautiful music is played to provide an all-encompassing...More

The only negative about this amazing lightshow is that there weren't many places to sit, other than on the floor. The Klimt images are projected on every surface. Not for people with hypersensitivity to light and certainly not for anyone with epilepsy.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this different and interesting immersive way to experience art. I could have spent all day here watching it over and over.

We purchased our tickets online, date and time specific. Glad we did, the queue for the ticket booth was enormous. The venue is okay, a bit uncomfortable sitting on the ground, as there aren’t enough places to sit. At times annoying that parents didn’t mind...More

As it is a new museum and I like Klimt, I thought this would be a great museum to visit. As it happens it was pouring outside so it was the best time to go to a museum. It was interesting and well done. I...More

As far as I know, this Exhibition has been extended until January 6th, 2019. Apparently they keep extending it so who knows, maybe there’ll be another extension. It’s an Exhibition worth seeing. Good luck
