M.d.O. is also much better than many European museums at giving a bit of context / history next to the art work (which is makes it so much better!!) Loved, loved, loved this museum - fifth floor gave me goosebumps...

Musee de l'Orangerie Paris
#3 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
Special note if traveling in the summer, the art museums have air conditioning so it's a great place to stop and cool off while learning about some amazing artists and history.
I've been to many famous museums around the world, but the Musee de 'Orangerie offered a uniquely intimate look into my favorite post-impressionist artists and those they inspired.

Musee Rodin Paris
#5 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
It's an extraordinarily peaceful and meditative place, close to other museums and landmarks, including the Eiffel which you can see towering over from certain vantage points in the sculpture garden.
Always one of my favorite Paris museums, but especially special on good weather days because you can take you time enjoying the wonderful garden.

Musee Nissim de Camondo Paris
#6 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
If you have been to the other wonderful Paris museums, as we have, it is highly recommended that you visit this museum for a wonderful experience.
It's a short visit but it's a nice break from visiting the larger museums and you'll get to see different works of art.

Musee des Arts Forains Paris
#7 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
This is definitely one of the best private museums that we have ever been.
We booked a tour in English and our guide was superb - he was enthusiastic, knew his stuff, and delivered quite a performance of Edith Piaf while we rode one of the 19th century carousels the museum boasts!
Musee Marmottan Paris
#8 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
Off the beaten path from the other large museums, this hidden gem is so much worth the trip if you love beautiful period furniture, Monet, Morrisot, and other Impressionists.
Paris has many small, specialized museums which offer art lovers a closer, more intimate opportunity to enjoy paintings and sculptures in unique settings.

Mundolingua Paris

Well worth a visit if you want a change from big and traditional museums.

Memorial de la Shoah Paris
#10 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
Parts of it are strictly in French, but like many other European Cities' Holocaust museums, it tells a very incredible but sad story of the european jews.
The museum has a very detailed history of the Holocaust, including France's role in deporting French Jews (though I think they could go further in taking responsiblity for their collaboration with the Nazis).

Atelier des Lumieres Paris
#11 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
I would only recommend this over the traditional Paris museums like Louvre, Orsay, and Pompidou (among ALL of the possibilities) if you've already seen them.
For a small fee you get to experience a modern museum that is so different to the museums people usually go to.
Musee Bourdelle Paris
#12 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
The Musee Bourdelle is one of our favorite Paris museums.
One of the best free museums in Paris
Musee du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac Paris

Musee du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac Paris top three museums in Paris : the Louvre, the Orsay and the Quai Branly The museum's collections + temporary exhibitions are just a must see when you visit Paris.
We've adored this big museum which presents some great permanent and temporary collections which cannot be found in other well-known national museums in Paris.

I was particularly pleased to see that the role of France's colonial troops in the world wars was seamlessly woven into the entire narrative presented of the war - American military museums could stand to learn fr...
We also went through most of the museum and saw lots of French war history and really enjoyed the World War 1 and 2 museums.

Petit Palais, City of Paris Fine Art Museum Paris
#16 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
The story of Paris and France unfolds with art, sculpture, furnishings, ceramics, and photographs in an exquisite setting which is more intimate and less crowded than larger museums like the Louvre.
The interior has a cozy charming ambiance and the fine arts collection (though smaller than most museums in Paris) is well worth the time and energy.

Musee Jacquemard-Andre Paris
#17 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
This gorgeous private home, filled to the brim with exceptional art, furniture, and fascinating architecture is intimate, small, and much more fun than big museums like the Louvre.
Unlike many of the great Paris museums (which are spectacular but sometimes overwhelming), this one is small and manageable, yet captivating and rewarding.

Galerie des Carrosses Versailles

Amazing collection of carriages - evolution of them in one museum.
We were pleasantly surprised to find part of the stables had recently been converted into a museum displaying examples of the carriages from the era.
Musee des Arts et Metiers Paris
#21 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
A break from art museums and monuments, this museum celebrates the history of science and technology that is both fascinating and engaging.
Ask a Parisian thier favorite museums and frequently the Musee des Arts et Metiers will make their top five or ten list.

Albert Kahn Musee et Jardins Boulogne-Billancourt
#23 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
Entry to the museum and gardens is inexpensive, at only four euros each you are transported into a different era inside the museum getting to know who was Albert Kahn, why he created such a delightful place in Paris.
I went there in summer 2016 before the museum closed.
Musee de la Gendarmerie Nationale Melun

Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature Paris
#25 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
... its the perfect size to explore in an hour or so, kids are fascinated by it and I recommend it to everyone because it is off the beaten path of those other famous Paris museums, but thats probably why I love it.
Located in Le Marais, it is very close to other museums such as Musée Picasso, Musée Cognacq-Jay, Musée Carnavalet, and Musée des Archives Nationales.
Chateau de Fontainebleau Fontainebleau
#26 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
The visit starts in the Napoleon Museum, which features portraits and busts of the Bonaparte family members and memorabilia from imperial ceremonies, palaces and conquests - most interesting.
I highly recommend and if you have a Paris museum pass the entry is free.

National Museum of the Renaissance Ecouen

Museum is a great extension of the Cluny in Paris and for those who want to get out of Paris for a bit of peace and quiet.
The excellent museum covers 2 floors and can take some time.
Musee du Parfum - Fragonard Paris
#30 of 405 Museums in Ile-de-France
The Musée du Parfum Fragonard (Perfume Museum Paris) is well worth a visit, especially if you have an hour or two to spare and you're nearby.
Wonderful small museum of great educational value.
