  • The exhibition"the spirit of the Bauhaus"is held at the Museum of Decorative Arts from 10-2016-19 to 26/02/2017 and it is a show not to be missed because it presents all the ins and outs of this movement. Although very condensed and presented in a somewhat compressed way, objects, paintings and documents helps us understand the Bauhaus. The lights are a little austere and explanatory cartels much too low to do not risk pushing the other many spectators in very tight spaces. Not to be missed!

  • One of my 2 favorite Paris museums. I love art, design and fashion and this Museum brought all this together. Their temporary exhibitions are fully documented and are wonderfully staged and the permanent collections of the last 2 floors (50/70s) have very beautiful pieces with bonus, a mini cinema space that objects in the films of the time. I'm so fan I took an annual pass! At the moment, don't miss Roger heel, the Bahaus and Jean Nouvel furniture

  • How is it possible that one of the most important museums in Paris, in 2016, can apply a short opening hours? A range from 11: 00 to 18: 00 visits the almost impossible for many visitors, a fortiori in view of the significant attendance during weekends. Closing in eighteen hours, that is to say in the middle of the afternoon is just incomprehensible, frustrating and almost unique in the world. It is experienced by me and many people as a deterrent to the visit of the Museum with the expos.

  • This venue hosts some amazing exhibits worth taking a look at when in Paris. Positioned at the far end of the Louvre palace (towards the gardens) you'll find an assortment of interesting and inspiration shows. Most recently went to see the Barbie exhibit-and what a show, do whatever you can to get yourself a ticket, it's not something you're going to forget in a hurry. You'll also find a spectacular fashion exhibition as well as rooms filled with some exquisite jewellery from centuries ago, furniture and sculpture. So many people say it, and that's because it's so true, this is definitely one of the best museums in Paris.
  • Truly underrated and oft-missed. Exceptional and marvelous pieces across multiple eras. The exhibitions are of an incredible standard. Paris has a lot of incredible museums, but this is probably one of my personal favourites.
  • Beautiful chairs, sculpture, furniture, and overall decoration on normal objects. The Roger Tallon exhibit is a wonderful recent history of utilitarian design.
  • Large museum so lots of walking. Great if you are into interior design!
  • I went there by the time they had the barbie-themed exhibition. It was a great experience and I was ablet o learn quite a bit of barbie's history and changes throughout the time. Also, it's included in the Paris Pass and I didn't know it. That's even better!
