  • 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.
  • On a regardé un expo magnifique ici. We didnt have to wait in a long cube, wich was great after a couple of days spending hours in line to acces to other places in Paris.
  • The building is nice, and the current exhibition "The Great Animal Orchestra" is fantastic, in my opinion. However, the management is terrible. I paid to see an exhibition I was very interested in, only to find it treated as a playground for children. Kids were running around screaming in an exhibition designed to sit in silence and appreciate sounds of nature. Granted I made the mistake of coming on a Saturday, so I asked management if I could instead come back on a weekday at no extra charge. They firmly said no, and expressed no concern for the children. They should make an effort to at least have signs indicating silence is preferred, and ask parents to make an effort in silencing their children. It truly was painful, seeing such a beautiful piece of art ruined this way, and as a customer, I found it ridiculous they would not meet me in the middle and understand my dissatisfaction. Bravo to the artist, shame on the curator. If you do decide to check this exhibition out, which is worthwhile, go in the middle of the day on a weekday during school time.
  • Rotating exhibits. Come to see the Jean-Nouvel designed building and enjoy the garden around the building. Some places to eat your sandwich. Order tickets online for faster entry on week-ends
