I've made a good living in the visual arts professions, have over 22,000 pics in my iPhoto library, and love a good photography show. This wasn't it. Despite the philosophical prose promoted by the curators, and the incredible huge billboards of the lovely reclining nude...More

A small but charming place to view the work of a photographer. It just depends on if you like them or for that matter understand them. The high point is that it's in Paris and what else do you need to know...It's worth a trip...More

Exhibits re: Dada artist and American photographer were interesting. Museum is worth a stop if you think the current exhibits merit your time. Interior of the building is unremarkable.

This was a gem to visit & the old Jeu de Paume gallery is now a photography space in Paris - it is worth a visit, especially if lucky enough to catch Susan Meiselas's photo stories .

Jeu de Paume, literally meaning Game of Palms, the precursor of tennis, is located in what housed the royal tennis courts. Today, it stands in the Tuileries Gardens of the Louvre, very close to Place de la Concorde and Musée de l'Orangerie. It is a...More

The museum is quite small, anddevoted to temporary exhibits. It is therefore highly recommendable to check the programme beforehand, as generally two or three exhibits are on display at the same time. This time, I visited first the production of Damir Ocko, on languages. His...More

If you are into photography keep an eye on this museum. I saw a terrific exhibit of Ed van der Elsken photos. Easy to get to.

The collection is okay, but unless you're specifically interested in an artist on exhibition, it's not worth the 10 euros entrance fee. There are quite a few other places with better and larger collections of modern/contemporary art in Paris for a similar entrance fee.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
