M.d.O. is also much better than many European museums at giving a bit of context / history next to the art work (which is makes it so much better!!) Loved, loved, loved this museum - fifth floor gave me goosebumps...

It's an extraordinarily peaceful and meditative place, close to other museums and landmarks, including the Eiffel which you can see towering over from certain vantage points in the sculpture garden.
A blend of a park, a gallery, an education and a visual specter -- Musee Rodin is one of the most accessible, easy to enjoy museums in Paris.

The History of the Camondo family is so sad, yet beautifully told in their former home.it is one of the finest personal museums i have seen anywhere in the world.
It made a perfect escape from the crowds of the big museums in the very center of Paris.

This is definitely one of the best private museums that we have ever been.
We booked a tour in English and our guide was superb - he was enthusiastic, knew his stuff, and delivered quite a performance of Edith Piaf while we rode one of the 19th century carousels the museum boasts!

Paris has many small, specialized museums which offer art lovers a closer, more intimate opportunity to enjoy paintings and sculptures in unique settings.
I love Impressionist art, and have seen numerous museums featuring the work of Claude Monet, including special collections from numerous museums.

This gorgeous private home, filled to the brim with exceptional art, furniture, and fascinating architecture is intimate, small, and much more fun than big museums like the Louvre.
Unlike many of the great Paris museums (which are spectacular but sometimes overwhelming), this one is small and manageable, yet captivating and rewarding.

Founded by a New Zealander Mark, Mundolingua fills a gap among the huge range of Museums in Paris.
Well worth a visit if you want a change from big and traditional museums.

Parts of it are strictly in French, but like many other European Cities' Holocaust museums, it tells a very incredible but sad story of the european jews.
Museums of the Holocaust can be down trodden, and for good reason, but this on is a bit different.

I would only recommend this over the traditional Paris museums like Louvre, Orsay, and Pompidou (among ALL of the possibilities) if you've already seen them.
I think even a teenager who might get bored in museums might love this.

The story of Paris and France unfolds with art, sculpture, furnishings, ceramics, and photographs in an exquisite setting which is more intimate and less crowded than larger museums like the Louvre.
The interior has a cozy charming ambiance and the fine arts collection (though smaller than most museums in Paris) is well worth the time and energy.

We've adored this big museum which presents some great permanent and temporary collections which cannot be found in other well-known national museums in Paris.
It is a beautifully organized museums, with different sections for each continent, although they all meet.

The Musée du Parfum Fragonard (Perfume Museum Paris) is well worth a visit, especially if you have an hour or two to spare and you're nearby.
I had a very interesting visit, free museum and free guided tour is really nice.

... its the perfect size to explore in an hour or so, kids are fascinated by it and I recommend it to everyone because it is off the beaten path of those other famous Paris museums, but thats probably why I love it.
If you have been to the "major" museums of Paris and want something different, this little gem in the Marais is worth a visit.
#22 of 256 Museums in Paris
A break from art museums and monuments, this museum celebrates the history of science and technology that is both fascinating and engaging.
This is a great rainy day, inexpensive, and, a bit of a break from the uncountable amount of art (sorry) & crowds found in all the more famous Paris museums.

The Palais de Chaillot has 8 gilded statues on the terrace and is home to several museums including “Musee National de la Marine (Marine Museum) and the Musee d l’homme.
It houses a theater and very interesting museums: the Museum of Man, Museum of Architecture and of the Navy, I recommend that all three

We were fortunate enough to see a spectacular exhibit on loan from russia, that has primarily modern through impressionist works located in the Pushkin and Hermitage museums.
I highly recommend visiting this museum, even before the other more famous museums in Paris.

I have been to other Jewish history museums which mostly focused on WWII and the Holocaust; this one focused on the thousands of years of Jewish history and culture BEFORE all that happened.
Many metropolitan areas around the world now have Jewish museums and it is interesting to see how each approaches its subject matter.

The Grande Galerie de l'Evolution is part of the Paris Natural History Museum, and definately the best part of the whole site.

We recently visited Paris and since we'd already seen most of the major museums, we decided to find some of the lesser known ones to explore.
If you like smaller museums, you’ll like this one.
