Nice place for a walk. As it was next to the bus station, then I had to cross it to reach the city. I wish I had had more time to explore this place, seemed to be cool.
Le personnel est désagréable! C'est dingue!!! À chaque visite c'est compliqué, les gens sont antipathiques, je regrette d'avoir pris un abonnement!

Not to mention the security guards... 1 day the bag's fine, the next day they refuse me access! They think they are on qualified agents, but there is not one who want the road! A SCANDAL this library!show original

Simply beautiful! I loved to visit there, the architecture and the gardens at the center, the place to chill out... Definitely a place to go in Paris
Not my favorite building in Paris, but the inside is great to work or to discover new things (a lot of expos are organized here)
Very big library, it looks very futuristic. In the middle is a small garden, you can walk on the roof around it.
boring and unfriendly place
Lovely place to take a walk
