Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    There are no words to describe this awesome museum, containing the major masterpieces of Impressionism.
    I do recommend Floor 5, where you can lose yourself in viewing Manet, Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Cezanne, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec and many more.
    You could spend several days to watch these masterpieces

    Eye catching title and - not to be offensive - that room is so crowded that you get no "experience" at all. The good news is that there are many, many more exhibits worthy of your attention and for my part, the most amazing room - not seen before by me - was the Apollon Gallery whose interior is breath-taking.

    This is my favorite museum in Paris. There are always new exhibits + Monet's Waterlilies = one of the most relaxing wanders while experiencing such a variety of pieces.
    The gift shop is packed with goodies, sharing space with the Cafe and its ample seating. A must-see never miss!

    After the crazy dangerous crowds at the Louvre, the Rodin museum was a delight. There were a couple hundred people but they were spread between the gardens and house. Although I am familiar with Rodin
    I didn’t know he was also a collector. He had a nice Munch, and two Van Gogh’s among other sculptures and antiques. The house overlooks the garden and it is a lovely setting. We stopped for a drink at the end of our visit and passed on the food as it looked like cafeteria food. Highly recommend!

    The museum is less known than others in Paris, and the visit was a great surprise! The museum itself is beautiful, mas it has an amazing collection of Monet’s paintings.

    While in Paris, I took the Metro out to this museum. I'd been so excited to go! When I arrived, they turned me away saying it had been reserved for a private party and I needed a reservation if I wanted to enter. I was extremely disappointed, especially since nothing I could find online prior to my trip mentioned this. I am including a photo that has the reservation number on it so others don't can make a reservation and not waste a trip out there like I did. We only had a single day in Paris because we were leaving on a Rhone river cruise.

    Well worth a visit to Napoleon’s tomb. The military museum was very good. A great collection of uniforms etc from France's military history.

    A gorgeous gem of a private collection- beautiful XVIII century furniture (chairs, writing desks, screens, paintings...) as well as bird-decorated crockery. The video about the family is informative (and a bit sad). Not too crowded and well-lit. Everything has been organized to show the pieces at their best!

    The architecture of the facade is just stunning and small it is not. There are a variety of sculptures & paintings on display though my personal favourite was a bronze of Ugolino and his sons on the ground floor.

    I went to the Musée Cluny on April 7th , which was the first Sunday of the month, so it was free, but luckily was no line at all.

    I started with the exhibit at the Frigidarium or the Thermes de Cluny. The walls are behind the exhibits now, so I wasn’t able to see the ruins of the Gallo-Roman thermal baths discovered right in the heart of Paris. I have no regrets though because the exhibit“The Art of France at the time of Charles VII” was spectacular. It was fascinating to see how the paintings, objects of art, stained glass windows, tapestries have changed from static and expressionless to lively and meaningful over the course of 39 years, from 1422 to 1461.

    Then I continued to the permanent collection where elaborate craftsmanship of the medieval time was presented in the best possible way. Intricate carvings of wooden, silver and ivory objects, brightly colored stained glass (you can get a close look at the examples of stained glass from the Sainte-Chapelle), opulent religious objects, original statuary from the Notre Dame Cathedral, etc. And stunning tapestries… not just The Lady and the Unicorn, which is just beyond any reasonable imagination. I don’t even know how much time I spent looking at these six stunning tapestries. Five of them depict the five senses – taste, hearing, sight, smell, and touch. The sixth displays the words "À mon seul désir" (to my only/sole desire). Once in your life you have to see this treasure… really…

    Practical note: the earlier you come on a free Sunday of the month the better: when I exited the museum around 2pm, the line to enter was very long.

    We were expecting a history of the deportations during World War Ii. The museum and memorials are much more more... here is an exhaustive history of antisemitism and pogroms... from the days of the Roman Empire through contemporary times. The World War I experience is emphasized but there is a deep and long history that is not overlooked. Remarkable presentations. The exhibition of the photographs of Julia Pirotte, a French resistance fighter, was beautifully curated -- on exhibit until January 7, 2024. So go soon if you have the chance! A free museum that is beautifully designed and deeply moving.

    I really enjoyed my visit! It is a house tour that is a little off the beaten path of the Paris museums. Not far from Arc de Triomphe. Interesting architectural details and a perhaps slightly oddball but interesting collection of pieces.

    What a collection of artefacts! All from erstwhile French Colonies in South America, Africa, Middle East and Asia. Barely place to walk. Though really, these should be back in the countries they were taken from. There's one collection donated by some doctor who worked in the Indo-China French colonies. Granted that had they not been here, they would not have been carefully preserved and more likely sold to private collectors by the various regimes after independence.

    We actually went for the Kehinde Wiley Collection of Portraits of African Heads of State. The short film provided an explanation on how he went about it. Just a wonderful exhibit. Wiley also painted President Obama.

    There was a history of Bollywood Cinema. Stunningly curated together with the history and evolution of film and film shows in India.

    This old museum displays techniques and scientific discoveries in historical fashion.
    Many of the artifacts such as advanced clocks have artistic appeal.
    To modernize the museum there are video displays near some of the show cases, unfortunately many of them are out of order.
    The Foucault pendulum is still there.

    It's been closed for a while, and while closed it was expanded and renovated. Now there is more to see and the display is more open and easier to follow. Lots of treasures here as they have an extensive collections of objects from the history of the city way back to pre-Roman times. And it's free!
