  • Visit for 1 times difficult. There All! Furniture, jewellery, ceramics, household items etc etc, even pictures. Masterpieces from the middle ages to the present day. Particularly well lit by the Art Nouveau period. Thank you for this! Liked themed apartments in eras where you can even walk like IKEA, except that the beds do not lie!)))

  • Inside of the Louvre Palace, one of the best museums in Paris where you can find the history of all the fine arts evolutions in France, and some exquisite temporary exhibitions!
  • We hit the wonderful Musee des Arts Decoratif for an hour or so before they closed. We know Paris and the French generally are supposed to be fabulous lovers. But it's got us bamboozled how anyone's ever found the time given the sheer volumes of ART in this country. The huge exhibitions are amazing and so much to take in. We especially liked the glass pieces by René Lalique and Émile Gallé.
  • If you like different kind of exhibitions, this is the place for you. Last time there was a Barbie exhibition that was awesome
  • Though it is right next to the Louvre, this museum is wholly separate from it and houses all things devoted to decorative arts. Watch for the temporary exhibits which can be quite glamorous featuring top designer names from past and present.
  • We visited several museums in Paris, the D'Orsay, Pompidou, Louvre, Romantique, and Jacques-Mart Andre, and this was one of my favorites, with the Pompidou and the D'Orsay tied for second. It is a lovely, spacious, and uncrowded - the displays are on multiple floors surrounding the multi-story atrium - with exquisite pieces of French decorative arts.
