A small modern art museum and i do prefer modern art. They have giant matisses there as well as others. It’s quiet and not crowded. The other wing houses temporary events like the launch of a new jordan basketball shoe. It’s hilarious as the line...More

I love this place. The internal space is huge and has an industrial chic vibe to it. The artwork was so interesting and so much fun at the time of our visit. We had lunch at the restaurant, Les Grandes Verres, and thoroughly enjoyed both...More

Was recommended this exhibition (they change) by a 30yr old. Maybe we are too old or too dumb but we just didn't get it. Waste of time.

I saw so many ads about this place that I thought I had to go see it. The entrance fee is quite expensive, 12 Euro, compare to the fee you pay for other museums in Paris where you actually see ART!! This place was so...More

I enjoyed my time here. A lot of modern art and a great escape from the crowd. There are two restaurants at Palais de Tokyo. In my experience, the Les Grands Verres restaurant was unkind to Americans. I won't talk about it here since I...More

The museum is undergoing renovations and some of the exhibits and the scenic garden at the back were closed. I was looking for the Lasco project and ended up walking around the Palais de Tokyo enjoying the humourous graffiti on the west façade, the whole...More

In a city with scores (or hundreds) of museums, this one is well worth your time and energy. The exhibits are cutting edge contemporary art and, unlike too many other venues, they successfully present new works, ideas and styles in a beautiful setting. Another benefit...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
