A controversy when it was built with exposed ductwork and industrial parts, it is a small art museum and outdoors a major center for strollers, jugglers,weird entertainers, local artists and tourists.Not pretty, but interesting.

Long queue to get in and queue to get tickets but it was well worth it. Don't be fooled by the long ticket queues at the kiosks - the self service machines can serve you tickets to see all of the exhibitions and the queue...More

This is a fantastic museum with a range of modern art. There's a free app you can download that provides a discussion of each work of art. The 5th floor, with some of the "older" works in the genre, is my favorite.

We set off on foot on a Tuesday having made the fatal error of not checking opening times. Closed on Tuesdays. Nothing daunted we went back the next day ( opens at 11am) and had to queue about half an hour to get in. Once...More

Our family was just as mixed as the adjectives to describe this place and I think individually we felt each of those ways about different parts of the building. Start with the architecture itself, incredibly modern in the oldest part of the city. However, I...More

...but too many people...like everywhere in this city. Definitely worth buying tickets upfront. The line is sloooooowwwww otherwise. Plan at least half a day otherwise you will be rushed. Outstanding exhibits from Magritte to Calder! Everything a modern art lover wishes for!

Last fees days to see exceptionally well-curated special exhibit. Starting with snapshots from his early time in Paris through to a late in life video interview, this exhibit is a long-overdue look at the life and work of one of America's greatest photographers. Highlights include...More

Much more diverse and intriguing than the fusty and overcrowded Louvre - a must see for conceptual and contemporary art fans with some great views of the city up top.

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
