  • The exhibitions of photography and multimedia within the Jeu de Paume are always absolutely valid. FOR STUDENT ADMISSION IS FREE THE LAST TUESDAY OF THE MONTH. In case you find yourself here, the ticket is around 7.50 euros. You do not need to make your reservation online, as the Museum is not beaten by the waves of tourists standard. The Museum's library, albeit small, is stocked with gorgeous babes art goodies, ever present pieces from the library. Then, in case you want to enjoy the sunset, programme the end of your visit (1 hour and a half) to the time of coucher du soleil and enjoy the changing light from huge Windows on the Place de la Concorde, Jardins de tulieries, up the Seine River with the bristling Eiffel Tower!

  • The exhibits are varied throughout the year. The place is very nice and the environment too. The speakers are very high quality... Very good moment of escape and personal enrichment...

  • The museum is quite small, anddevoted to temporary exhibits. It is therefore highly recommendable to check the programme beforehand, as generally two or three exhibits are on display at the same time....  more »

  • Yesterday me and my friend tried to go into the museum, he had his travel backpack with him as he was leaving Paris that evening. As we entered the building, the girl at the entrance was already very grumpy. She didn't speak a word in English although my friend told her that he doesn't understand a word in French. Then she told us to put his backpack in one of the safes, which obviously were way to small. So when we bought our tickets we asked if we could take the bag inside, the man already said yes, but then this girl from the entrance came running up to us, and told us, again in a very unfriendly way that it was not possible to take it inside. Today I visited the museum. I am a big fan of photography, but for the price the collection is very poor. And really not that spectacular. The short films in the top floor are nice, but again really not worth the price. Fun fact: In the area with the computers are two big safes for baggage that you can lock, and my friend's bag would've definitely fit in there. Imma just say: where there's a will, there's a way.
  • Great museum for photography. just a small museum. attached to it is a small hana bento, japanese food
  • Small. But extremely interesting. Not crowded. Very contemporary and relevant to today's life. Opposite of the Louvre - quite tiny, but you will not see this content in art history books, or anywhere else!
  • Incredible photographic and videographic exhibitions. One of the best museum visits in Paris, in my opinion.
  • One of the best photo gallery in Paris for years now. Amazing work in an amazing historical place. I never had bad exhibitions there.
