  • A small museum that essentially offers exhibitions on or around photography. Discoveries, well organized exhibitions and a well-developed educational hub.

  • If you are into photography keep an eye on this museum. I saw a terrific exhibit of Ed van der Elsken photos. Easy to get to.  more »
  • A space-based photo but not only. Beautiful expo, rather dense and well brought. Attendance is more than correct, it doesn't is not above nor do the tail to see a snap.

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.
