Museum with incredible and well laid-out collection of furniture and clothing designs form the Middle Ages all the way through the 21st century. Make sure you leave enough time to see all the floors.

Went on Friday, June 16th with the understanding that parts of the museum are under renovation. Prior to the ticket purchase we were told that floors 5 to 9 were closed but the other floors were open which was ok since we wanted to see...More

Amazing diverse collection of interior decorative pieces from furniture, clocks, hardware and even entire rooms from palaces to apartments that have been dismantled piece by piece and recreated for the public to enjoy. Some favorite highlights include napoleons throne, original design drawings of palace interiors...More

Currently much of the museum is closed and under renovation. Very confusing layout at the moment presumably due to closed areas. The few galleries open now were not particularly interesting. Waste of time and money.

We LOVED the Musee des Arts Decoratifs! The exhibitions and history behind them were fascinating. Our only complaint was that the audio tour--which was free!--sometimes did not match the exhibits and several exhibits were without English translations: a real shame. Still, the walk through France's...More

The best thing about this museum was the short line and lack of a crowd! It's was just odd. The textile exhibition was kind of cool but I felt it could have been much better and more coherent. Everything else was a bit of a...More

This underrated museum is housed in a wing of the Louvre with its own entrance on the Rue de Rivoli; adult entry costs Euro 11, and there are also combination tickets available. Don't try to see everything - it will overwhelm you. The various collections...More

The place is famous for the recreated period rooms, so make sure you see those. They are not at one place but scattered around the museum. Pick the audioguide (first floor). It takes you chronologically through the exhibits. The directions are not perfect but you...More

For anyone interested in interior design or furniture, this branch of the Louvre is a must. After its somewhat recent rehab, it is in terrific shape. Lots of treasures inside. One can spend many hours.

I truly believe this museum is underrated. I went here hoping to enjoy a museum which is not too crowded. And that was the best decision!. I spent the whole day here admiring and soaking up as much as I could. I particularly love the...More

Housed in the Louvre but separate from the main museum (entrance on Rue de Rivoli), we went as my daughter is very interested in fashion and textile. The Musée des Arts Décoratifs incorporated the Musée de la Mode et du Textiles some time ago. Sadly,...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

Hi, we will be visiting Paris in mid Feb and I would like to know if the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is worth visiting for the fashion and textile displays. My daughter is very interested in fashion design und unfortunately the YSL Foundation and the Galliera are both closed during our visit. Thanks

As others advise, check the website first; but there are some fashions/textiles always on display. Check also the Grand Palais exhibitions -- recently they had a Louis Vuitton exhibition, for example. Finally, explore the... More
