    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 it is in the area you should go, but not worth approaching exclusively for this.

    It is on the quai Saint-Bernard, on the left bank of the Seine, between the Pont de Sully and Pont de Austerlitz. A museum open air, with the parts without fences is or perimeters. It's a beautiful walk stuck to the shore of the River, with lots of vegetation, very well maintained and ornate, according to Tino-Rossi garden along different paths.

    This is a fabulous, little known sculpture garden, thus not overcome with crowds of tourists. Small and therefore manageable; easy to get to and makes great setting for memorable photos. Easy to combine with a visit to the Museum of Natural History, which is nearby.

    Frankly, they have no interest and distort even the garden. The day where asked to municipal services to clean the garden, will have to clarify what are the sculptures and what are the things to throw because otherwise everything will end up in the landfill.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
