  • This was my third gallery of the day so in truth I was pretty arted out. The exhibition about uprisings was phenomenal and it was also great (and perhaps unusual) to see Basim Magdy show. The bookshop...  more »
  • High-quality exhibitions, great place for a cultural visit. The library is not outdone. Each visit is source of learning for me. I would highly recommend.

  • And place du Jeu-de-Paume Museum on the north side of Concorde Tully lie within the Park borders, walking from there, just visit the Musée de l'Orangerie on the opposite South side just because it is easier. Jeu de Paume Art Museum is a Museum of contemporary art of photo and video, but it seems the main exhibition. There was no person was a queue before opening hours of two hours late from the Orangerie Museum is a tourist. I was Helena Almeida and Francois Coller, Edgard arancón three exhibitions. Is Europe photo Museum near the Saint-Paul metro station and of the same type.

  • Great museum and just the right size. Frequently not too busy and you can easily see everything there without feeling overwhelmed. Not to mention its great location in the park.
  • Excellent contemporary art exhibitions. No household names here but almost always someone to be "discovered". The Adrian Paci show in 2013 remains a highlight of our many visits to Paris.
  • Lesser known photography museum. It had some fascinating expositions when I was there of some artsy photography and some more historical, political photography.
  • Small photography centred art museum off the river seine. Beautiful location!
  • Built in 1861, during the times of Napoleon III, it housed the tennis courts (jeu du pomme is the French name for the game). After the WWII it was used as the museum which held the most important impressionist works (now in the Musee d’Orsay). Now, it is an excellent art gallery for contemporary art.
