  • It is often annoying to wait in line, and to be constantly bothered by the crowd at the Beaubourg. Start with a (free!) tour of the permanent collection of the MAM of Paris! Few people (I wonder why), a bright and large space, a sublime collection, clear presentation...

  • 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.
  • Great exhibitions of modern and contemporary artists. The permanent art collection is less interesting. Make sure to visit the Palais de Tokyo nearby with its edgy exhibitions and cool bookshop, cafe and restaurant.
  • This place can be really interesting if you are art lover. This place reflects both contemporary and modern French arts. If really enjoyed this place during my visit in Paris.
  • This museum is free to enter and houses a collection of modern art. There are some impressive Robert Delauney pieces here and Matisse's dancers. The rest of the collection is limited, but a good exposure to modern art with French and international artists represented. The best feature of the museum, but not widely known about is it's excellent outdoor cafe with views of the Eiffel tower and drinks served without a premium.
  • Terrible and useless security checks. Unfriendly. And you have to pay to print your own tickets. Nice exhibition though I guess.
