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

I’m a Van Gogh fan, so I was a little apprehensive about going to such an edgy museum. It was fascinating. Some of the exhibits were fun, some were uncomfortable, but all were thought provoking. I recommend this as a break from all the must...More

I had a really good time there. After a day of visits we finished by this museum quite tired and it gave us energy to really enjoy it... The architecture is enjoyable, playing with the levels and the views. And the exhibitions are very involved...More

On a visit to the Musee d’Art Moderne don’t miss this restaurant. Cuisine française. Nice atmosphere. Staff are nice. At lunch choose the Formule (soup, plat du jour, coffee) for 15€.

I like Palais de Tokyo because of its architecture and the art. Always an inspiration to be here. And very near the Eiffel Tower too.

A true hidden gem in the Paris art scene. This is an alternative to The Louvre and Orsey, and is well worth the entrance fee. It’s open till midnight and is worth going after dark! Great beers and wines on offer - it’s just a...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

famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
