  • This open-air museum was established in 1980 and it is located in the garden Tino Rossi, to the No. 2 Wharf Saint Bernard, in the 5th arrondissement of Paris. Side entrance Seine, upstream from the bridge of Sully and in front of the Institute of the Arab world. Many works of french and foreign artists, about thirty are exposed in this large area with trees along the Seine, giving it a very special charm. The works are very diverse and varied with for example, a large portico with silver mobile "Times 10" of Nicolas Schöffer 1978 columns colored various sizes of Guy de Rougemont, a bronze in three parts make excavations of Etienne Martin in 1954, "Marseille" of Caesar, plate ribbed bronze, "Shining Wings" by the Japanese artist Yoshikuni Lida and many other works which do not leave indifferent fans of sculptures visitors to decrypt. Fortunately of small information boards are placed on each pedestal to give some explanations. I'm not really sensitive to this ' Art says modern "but I recognize that the fact that these works are in the middle of this garden makes them less austere and more accessible, it is true in a pleasant setting with many trees and benches to sit. This museum is accessible by metro stations "Jussieu" lines No. 7 and 10 and "Sully-Morland" line n ° 7. There is very little known Parisians and tourists because located slightly away from the traditional tourist circuits. More reason to visit. This space is open year-round and 24 h/24

  • A walk outdoors with a little poorly maintained sculptures, is cute the tour by being on the banks of the Seine (left side). If is this by the area there are that go, but not worth the penalty approach is exclusively for this.
