  • The building is worth to be visited in its entirety, the outside is as special as the inside. The explanations given by the guides on building techniques are interesting and complete. The effects of color created by Buren are impressive but unfortunately short-lived. The different terraces help out defence district and a remarkable view of Paris.

  • The space is great, and light flows in from everywhere. The permanent collection is not the reason to go there as it's a kind of "catch-up" of François Pinault's own collection displaid in Venice, as ...  read more »
  • We went there because intrigued by controversies that have divided for and against at the time of the inauguration of the Foundation a few years ago and still today. So my expectations were mixed. The first impact was astounding and during the visit I never stopped to wonder of discovery, layers, colors, views of Paris, the visual harmony of this giant ship, with its colorful sails over a wide and nice Park. Interesting also the bookshop, pleasant the walk to get there in the gardens of the Acclimatization; Metro Porte Maillot or Porte Dauphine. Only survey the artworks were not visible but the entrance fees have not been reduced, family ticket € 27.

  • This is NOT a fashion museum ! Designed by the iconic contemporary architect Frank Gehry, the architecture alone warrants a visit for those who are into contemporary and very avant garde experiences, including in some exhibitions. It is one of several new national museums and is located in the beautiful Bois de Boulogne.
  • To me it is without any doubt the best museum to visit in Paris. The architecture is stunning, with nice views from the terraces. The exhibitions are always excellent as well. A must-do.
  • Interesting exhibit for those who appreciate modern art and sculpture, definitely worth a visit while in paris. As for it being a family attraction, unless your kids are art fanatics I would say no.
  • Fantastic architecture, good space for exhibitions. Nice views outside on the upper levels. Auditorium is great for live performances, the acoustics are very good and nice works from the late Ellsworth Kelly permanently on display in the auditorium.
  • Waste of time and money, really disappointed. I am surprised that this place is so overrated here. Collection of art (it was all chinese artists) is poor, only couple of art objects and plenty of empty space inside museum. More security stuff than art. Few rooms with screens, but with really strange videos, very long, boring.. and even one advertisement (wtf?!). Crazy expensive restaurant. Part of interesting small roads near the water were closed because of rainy weather. View from the top could be good, but it is covered by roof, so - forget it. Building itself is interesting and very modern, with beautiful geometrical shapes. Entrance fee (yes, ticket windows are outside, wait in cold) is 14 euros, it includes access to the garden of acclimatization nearby, which is super nice and beautiful, with birds, animals and plenty of activities for children (but you can visit it without lois vuitton just for 3 euros). The walk from metro to museum in quite nice also, in the forest. Don't recommend.
