  • The building in the garden, actually at the border. If you do not know about the existence of this place, you likely won't find. The building has organized various exhibitions. The ancient exterior, Interior subscribed more up-to-date drugs.

  • This is probably one for the photography enthusiast. I visited late in the day on a very chilly January afternoon, and the contrast from entering the Louvre or d'Orsay was stark. No queues, just wande...  more »
  • Museum quite confusing with disconcerting films (a hand stamp to the infinity of the papers, an autopsy, a woman who wear makeup for more than 15 minutes...) and photographs to decipher. Too much intellectualize art, written sentences of this kind: "this German photographer... would be one of the most influential figures in the history of photography of the 20th century." His work invites us to reflect on the nature of photography and its artistic and speculative potential in current issues of art "." Attention to intellectual masturbation!

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.
