This is an exciting place where you can enjoy art! I found most of the exhibits captivating and had a lot of fun interacting with art when I had the chance to. They got fabulous postcards and other amazing stuff in their shop!

Very nice location. But the current exhibit is a bit boring. And the price is actually quite expensive for what it is. Oh, and expect to queue a lot.

The museum is interactive and also has different activities for kids throughout the day. The entry is fairly cheap. The gift shop also has some great items. The Dioramas exhibit was really cool and thought-provoking.

The coolest part of the whole batch of shows and exhibits was the Virtual Reality artistic representation by a Korean artist that made me realize expression is no longer limited by our regular visual arts methods

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
