  • Wonderful exhibition of Bernard Buffet, very well known and unjustly forgotten. Navigating through its various inspirations over the years, the style changes as his physique deteriorates but the tone remains: sad people, scenes of war terribly evocatrices, a feature sleek early career, a teeming work. Bravo for this retrospective.

  • A very nice museum with modern an contemporary art. Focus is mainly on French painting after the impressionists. 
  • In two hours time a very beautiful expo out B Buffet course through 3 themes: meteoric fame, the turning point and exile. An expressionist painter who did think has the stroke of the black lines bd brands. Not to be missed. Until February 26, 2017

  • Great Space. It has a permanent exposition which is great and FREE. Bernard's Buffet is worth paying the ticket though.
  • Excellent collection of modern, and contemporary art. Wonderful gallery in central Paris, within walking distance of the Eiffel tower. Large rooms on the first floor with 2 dedicated solely to two gigantic Matisse. The lower floor houses more contemporary work, as well as a small cafeteria.
  • In comparison to other museums in Paris this place was only okay... All things being equal there are far better museums to see, and with that in mind would recommend against if you have limited time in Paris
  • Un de mes musées préférés de Paris. Des expositions toujours variés, intéressantes, et impressionnantes. Également, super visite guidée !
  • I have been there with my girlfriend and we enjoyed it a lot. The building and the area where the museum is are really nice! I would recommend to go to the Musée d'Art Moderne, but I wouldn't pay for the special exhibition. If you like art and you are really intrested it's something different, but if you "just want to have a look" it isn't worth to pay for it. There is a huge area that is for free and in my opinion it's the most impressing part.
