  • I went last week and I really liked the different series of photos on display. The price of 4,5e (reduced fare) is affordable. The place is beautiful, in the marais district. The inside is clean. I recommend the expos of the moment!

  • Nice place, very nice bookshop with excellent advice on the part of the Manager of the store (I found a photographer I knew: Fred Herzog). The expos are well highlighted and presented with the right level of explanation. Initially I was not interested in the Serrano exhibition, but I was captivated by his work. In general, the House, museums photo have 1 or 2 interesting exhibitions. Here, it is much more. A remake very soon.

  • Very nice and interesting, visit the exhibition building is very nice, well staged photos. Visit quick and very nice area to visit as the village St. Paul or the Basilica just next door. So do photo enthusiasts.

  • one of the best place in Paris for photography lovers. Tickets were free after 5pm all Wednesdays, hope it's still the case.
  • Jennifer's Top 10 Museums in Paris! Totally underrated. Featuring amazing contemporary photographers. I was blown away by the work. Two floors of just absolute perfection. Come here often as they change up the collections. A must if you love photography.
  • Everytime I' m in the neighbourhood I stop at this lovely Museum. Always worth it.
  • I have been there many times during the last year and they always have very good exhibitions.
  • absolutely wonderful. each time i am in paris, this is one of my stops. well worth a visit each and every time
