    We had seen the posters for this photo exhibit all over Paris, along with Steve McQueen, and Dior. The exhibit encompassed three floors of images by perhaps 40 photographers. I loved it, being a "car ...  more »

    Photo exhibition on the theme of automotive, accessible to all and not only to lovers of mechanics car based on a sociological approach. Rich with a Fund of 500 photos, organized by topic, on 3 levels. The library allows to complete the visit and find books.

    A fluid and well exhibition staging (apart from a screen projecting pictures of Langdon Clay placed just in front of prints of William Egglestone) offers us beautiful or less beautiful prospects on the place of the car in our society. The car can be sublimated as a symbol (Egglestone, Maria Shore, Luciano Rigolini), réimaginée, examined (Valérie Belin), bouncing (Matthew Porter) denounced or recycled (Turtle project in ghana).

    Very poor. Only one exibition : photos, and only part of basement and ground floor. The garden is not nice at aĺl, and is one of the features that should make it stand out. Not worth the money you pay. Choose another to spend your time and money.

    Excellent, calm, great location in a clam neighborhood. Perfect day exploring my city and seeing something finally unique... no crowds, no lines, just great photography and super nice staff. Will come again! Next door is Lithograph café: also excellent and the Montparnasse Cemetery. Love it all!

    Went for the Auto Photo exhibit. Place is rather small, but the clever layout and the amount of information to obtain from each exhibit means you stay quite long.

    A fabulous venue with a gorgeous back garden and a spot to have a picnic or drink. It's a great place for exhibitions of all types and never too busy. Would recommend!

    A rather small and subtle building hosting high-quality rotating exhibitions. I was visiting only to take a look at Jean Nouvel's architecture but the exhibition itself interests me just as much, if not more.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
