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 .

This is probably one for the photography enthusiast. I visited late in the day on a very chilly January afternoon, and the contrast from entering the Louvre or d'Orsay was stark. No queues, just wander up to the door, and be welcomed by a smiling...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.

Those who say that it is an in and out don't seem to want to see the shows in any depth. It usually takes me about two hours, but then there are usually about three shows running concurrently. As I live in a southern suburb...More

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
