If there's an exhibit, any exhibit, happening here during your stay, pay the ticket price and enjoy the absolutely amazing architectural space, which is totally original and in gorgeous Art Nouveau condition. The grand staircases, the supporting ironwork, the unique glass roof which is ENORMOUS, make this one of my favorite spots in Paris.

The Gardens (Jardins) exhibition is dedicated to all those who love flowers, in all possible shapes : drawing, dried, painted, organised or wild, their colours, their growth, etc. Flowers and gardens, most of them in the 16th to 19th century, around castles and manors. The profusion of mother nature as caught by man. Maybe the labor of man (and woman,... More

Nice architecture, good place to visit - just beside Les Champs Elysées. There are lots of places in the street to eat.

We read exciting reviews about this very first exhibition in France dedicated to Gardens. And we were quite disappointing because it was just very classic, with very strong french bias. No mention of Japanese gardens for instance. Most part of it exhibits french gardens of numerous castles and palaces. Some paintings are noteworthy though. But 13 Euros for this exhibition... More

Magnificent Fascade for this building however entrance is restricted and only allowed when attending an event there. We recently visited the Rodin Exhibition - it wasn't too bad - but the building was amazing. I managed a couple of interior photos not related to the exhibit. 1881.

We did it on line for 10:30 and only waited a few minutes but oddly by 12:45 there were no lines whatsoever. Go... More

What an absolutely beautiful place to be. Glass, glass everywhere and a wonderful experience. Go and walk through if you get the chance...many things happening if you are here at the right time. I believe this is where the Victoria Secret fashion show is also.
