  • The reception staff is an arrogance and a lack of incredible civility. It is hard to believe that this staff is paid through that visitors buy tickets. Even, a complaint sent to the Museum by e-mail received no response. The customer is more King but a simple topic (or subject). Too bad, because collections (before closing for renovations) were wonderful.

  • The collection of the Museum of modern art presented in the left wing of the Palace in Tokyo. Here are numerous exhibits from fauvism and Cubism, to Matisse, Chagall and Madeljani. In May 2010 the year the Museum was looted and lost 5. Admission is free, except for temporary exhibitions. In the right wing "playground for contemporary creativity". There are film screenings, concerts, fashion shows and exhibitions. If you like contemporary art, go here.

  • Until October 29, 2017, you see this exhibition with the theme of the relationship between these three giants of the art of the 20th century. The show brings together hundreds of works presented with refinement. It is accompanied by a very interesting catalogue. A wonderful event not to be missed!

  • Great, had lots of help with the baby stroller when there were no elevators available. Beautiful art pieces. Bilingual info English and French. Museum is a good reasonable size, easy to visit in a half day's time. The Cafe just reopened today, beautiful view and outdoor eating space.
  • The museum is a nice escape from all the super touristy areas. Not many people so you can really take your time and enjoy the art. Only the permanent collection is free, and it's currently pretty small because of renovations. But a nice break and interesting artwork. You need to enter from the Wilson side. I went to the New York side first and there's no entrance that way.
  • Great free permanent collection in a beautiful setting. Love hanging out by the pool looking on the Sien.
  • The current special exhibition of works by the artist Karel Appel is very interesting if you keep an open mind. Unfortunately the permanent collection which has free admission is temporarily closed for renovations. A superb view of the Eiffel Tower from the square where you can enjoy a coffee. Note that the on site bookshop has many interesting art books, mostly in French. One final note that the exterior area around the building is a mecca for skateboarders and actually not very clean! (Did anyone say pissoir?)
  • Always entertaining exhibitions. Less crowded than the Trocadéro, super terrasse.

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.
