  • How anything can please anyone! Convince you of the existence of an artistic approach, convince yourself that you find or you will be found, and this will help you get the 12 balls of the ticket and lost time. But really!

  • The place is quite big.. there are brochure you can use for the story. There are different arts and case. There are paintings and murder case theme.. There's also a wood sculpture. The place is nice. 
  • I went there eyes closed, I didn't look at the theme of the exhibition. I came and I met others, myself, my questions, my limits. I was shocked and amazed.

  • It's a rare experience you get by coming to Palais de Tokyo. If you're a big fan of contemporary art, you're never leaving here. I never knew such a modern combination of aesthetics and simplicity could make such interesting exhibits. Despite the hundreds of other museums offered in Paris, this is the one that you need to come see for yourself. Unlike Musée D'Orsay or the Louvre, Palais de Tokyo offers a unique experience like never before that will leave you breathless and impressed.
  • Great afternoon with the kids at the Tino Sehgal "Carte Blanche" performance. Amazing to see the lower floor fully free of any walls. Loved interacting with the performers.
  • It s a nice building where there are exhibitions. You can see the tour eiffel. Quiet area. Relax area inside to have a quick nap on the carpet
  • Enjoy the cotemporary art exhibition without forgetting to take the time for a coffee on the Esplanade best between 1 and 3 pm to enjoy the sun.
  • Love this museum, amazong place. Appreciate also the "ateliers tok tok" for the kids.
