Being a fashion major, I feel like I died and went to fashion heaven! Sure to find something that blows you away! Such a magical place with treasures like Audrey Hepburn's hat collection and pieces that belonged to Marie Antoinette. Building itself is breathtaking!

The museum is small but beautiful. Must see the Margiela exhibition. Those that are complaining about the price and not knowing the designers is ridiculous. It's not expensive and people should do their research on what they're paying and seeing. Duh.

Palais Galliera isn't large. Neither is the Martin Margiela's retrospective. But you can have a glimpse of all the designer's collections (from Spring-Summer 1989 to Spring-Summer 2009) and see what a talent he's. The exhibits include some of his iconic pieces. Highly recommended, especially for...More

This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
