  • This fashion museum doesn’t have any permanent collection, so I recommend checking on their website if there are any exhibitions at the moment. Located in an old mansion in the 16th district, it’s rat...  more »
  • We very much enjoyed the wonderful exhibit "Anatomie d'une collection" last fall. Quite informative and with great garments. Would go to almost anything there.  more »
  • The exhibit I attended was very well done, the museum staff were friendly and helpful. This museum and the other Paris-city museums are small enough to add to a morning or afternoon with another activ...  more »

  • I absolutely loved this museum. There were pieces belonging to Marie Antoinette, Josephine Bonaparte, Audrey Hepburn, and more! It is fairly small, but well worth the visit for those who love historical costume and fashion. The only downside for me was a lack of English translation via a guidebook, small placards, or maybe an audio guide. Granted, I know it's France, and they don't have to post other languages, but it really would have made a world of difference when reading (or not reading, haha) about the different pieces. The larger boards when entering each room did have an English side, so I was thankful for that. I guess you can always use Google translate on your phone or just learn French.
  • Although it is a little bit small, this museum has some amazing pieces of fashion. I would highly recommend for people with an interest in fashion! Make sure to check out the courtyard after as well, perfect for an afternoon picnic!
  • The exhibits themselves are stunning. The museum could renovate and push and exhibitions to today's modern standards though.
  • Beautiful building, beautiful exhibitions. Fashion history is well documented and preserved. For a fashion student it's a real treat.
  • Beautiful building with interesting expositions.

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.
