Everybody knows the Louvre, now Orsay, and also Pompidou center, or new extraordinary Quai Branly ... But who can say he knows that museum? Though its collections are wonderful. Large, not crowdy, plenty of beautiful paintings, nearly no queueing up, No hesitation!

This is a beautiful building right next to the Grand Palais. It's free, and worth a visit if you're in the area and have some time.

I was very lucky to visit during the Al-Thani show. It was amazing. There are plenty of short term shows to see.

Great (free!) museum with a very varied and interesting collection. It won't fill up an entire day but if you've got 1-2 hours, this museum is a great way to spend them.

The building itself is beautiful, and it is free which is great, there is no line (We waited about 15 mins to get in) There is a small (maybe 5 to 6 rooms) but nice collection of paintings, sculpture and decorative arts, but is surely...More

Nicely laid-out museum with statuary, paintings, and decorative arts (crystal, china, tapestry, cabinetry). Note that the explanation of the artwork is only in French.

Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive
offices and presidential palaces; architecture from
19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art
