There are enough Modigliani's paintings in there to make a Modigliani fan like me simply extatic. Loved the place, plus it's FREE!

We never miss a trip to this museum when in Paris. Attended a live performance artist event this past October. Fantastic, even though we don't speak French, and this was an interactive event. Also Tomas Saraceno had a wonderful exhibit.

close to the Pont de l'Alma you find the Palais de Tokyo and the twin museum of modern art. I visited the temporary exhibition of the Argentinian artist Tomas Saraceno. It was a great experience from this artist who combines art, science and technology.

How much you enjoy the Palais de Tokyo depends entirely on how much you want to see the artist they are currently exhibiting, it changes and they seem to give full control to a particular artist. The Palais is a two story, minimalist space compared...More

The good thing about the Palais de Tokyo is that it offers an experience off the beaten path. We saw Tomas Saraceno’s On Air, interesting, not entirely comprehensible but if you just look at the art or even participate in it without giving too much...More

If there is a good exhibition on, go here. Fantastic space. Not hard to get too. It would all depend on the exhibition though. The one we saw was amazing.
