  • 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.
