This is a cool museum. The building itself is beautiful and unique from the outside which drew attention to me when visiting it. Every piece of art in this museum is a replica of famous paintings from time and across the world (for the purpose...More

For me, with an interest in buildings, the building itself was worth it. Cool building with a cool history. And, it's a great concept in general- though I have to admit, I was hoping for painted reproductions, such as advanced art students produce to practice...More

A vibrant art museum. Lots of children's voices, happiness everywhere. Activities for children certain times of day.

The building itself is a wonder to behold (from the World's Fair in Paris, at the beginning of the 20th century - made of iron and glass) and what drew us to visit the museum with our two young boys, 4 and 6 years old....More

I went there only once. The museum itself is educative: it contains copies of paintings from great masters and is mostly visited by schools. But the architecture is worth it: it was first built for the International Exposition in Paris, and then was brought back...More

Sometimes the package is more impressive than the contents. Check out my pics to see why. It's a very cool, unusual building. When I was there the exhibit was a collection of reproductions of great works of Western painting, mixed with some interesting lesser-known works....More
