Nice museum laid out well for an exhibition. The exhibition on uprisings was interesting and was political rather then artistic. Although connections between art and uprisings were pointed out. This museum is very near a Metro stop and Ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde, at the end of the Jardin des Tuileries. This makes it an easy stop if... More

Very disappointed there was an exhibition announced about Marilyn Monroe everywhere, but the museum has a little paper on the door "closed for renovations" ?????

This was my third gallery of the day so in truth I was pretty arted out. The exhibition about uprisings was phenomenal and it was also great (and perhaps unusual) to see Basim Magdy show. The bookshop is excellent

So this is basically a contemporary art kunst haus, which is different than a museum. It is 10 euro to get in, very easy to reach from public transportation (the metro is practically right below it). The Paris Museum Pass does NOT work here, so schedule your time accordingly. In the way of many French art museums the emphasis is... More

This is a venue looking for a purpose, and it hasn't found it yet. The various photographic exhibitions it houses currently were either dull or pretentious. We were in and out in 20 minutes, shaking our heads.

I visited the Jeu de Paume when they had the special Philippe Halsman exhibit and it was amazing. The museum is small and can only house a few exhibits at a time but they really made the most of the space with this exhibit. I'll definitely be back!

As others have noted, sometime since my last visit (in 1982!) the JDP has been re-focused on photography. This is a nice-sized, easy-to-visit collection (my traveling companion has a torn meniscus, so we appreciate attractions that are not too taxing). The Josef Sudek exhibit is well worth the visit; the other stuff, not so much. Lovely space.
