We first saw the temporary Zao Wou-Ki, L'espace est silence exhibition. A true delight. Then went on to see some of the permanent collection (a large part of the museum is closed for renovation and judging by the entrance it bitterly is needed). Beautiful collection...More

I visited this museum for the UNhyped Zao Wou-Ki exhibit. The museum layout for the special exhibit was surprisingly good to admire the late work of this renowned artist. Spacious space with high ceilings to accommodate the large artworks of special exhibits. If you don't...More

If you have visited the mainstream museums of Paris, then this should be the next in line. There are no queues and the access is really easy (even if there are currently some constructions taking place). The access to the permanent collections is free (everyday...More

We went to see Zao Wou-Ki, a contemporary abstract Chinese-French painter. It was a really beautiful exhibition, impressively large rooms. My lesson is: avoid the famous names but go for perhaps lessor known but impressive artists and learn something new.

When we went there were two exhibitions that had to be paid for. The permanent collection is free and well laid out, giving a good introduction to many different schools of early 20th century painting. No café unfortunately. Also a leaflet showing the layout and...More

The exposition space here is huge and very well-lighted, so if there is a special expo here that appeals to you, go as it will be very well put together.

Located near big-time tourist attractions, this museum is often overlooked, but it is worthwhile to visit. The permanent exhibition shows a small but interesting selection of C. XX and XXI art, mostly by French artists. Our interest was the Zao Wou-Ki exhibition. The spaciousness of...More

I have been many time to Paris, but never to this museum. It is a bit off the tourist blocks, but you can easily get there by metro to Alma Marceau. You can see the permanent collection for free. Many of the famous French artists...More
