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.

    A wonderful overview of European paintings, sculptures and decorative art from the mid-19th Century till the start of WWI, with a strong focus on French Impressionism. Unlike the enormous Louvre, it is possible to get round this whole museum in one - very tiring - day. There are so many highlights - the paintings of Manet, Monet, Cézanne, van Gogh, Courbet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Degas, Seurat, Signac and many, many others. My highlights? Degas' wonderful ballerina statue, van Gogh's Starry Night, Monet's Poppy Field, Caillebotte's Floor Scrapers, Seurat's Circus, Manet's Olympia and Degas' Absinthe. The building, an early railway station, is high and airy and a beautiful environment for these stunning works of art.

    What can I write that hasn't been written hundreds of times before. You should book early, and still be prepared to queue. It's sooo worth it. You will see a fair percentage of the greatest works of art that human beings have ever produced. Don't try to see it all unless you have a week free. If you list the dozen or so things you really want to view (Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, Michelangelo's Slaves, the Marly Horses, The Raft of the Mudusa, La Liberté, Vermeer's Lacemaker, Venus de Milo, Psyche and Cupid, the Cheat with the Ace of Diamonds, Dürer's self-portrait, whatever), and plan your route through the Louvre to see them, avoiding being distracted by looking left of right, you can probably get round in two hours. Then decide what you like best - Ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greek Sculptures, Northern European paintings, whatever, and spend a couple of hours in that section. You will now be so tired that you cannot absorb any more!

    This museum is a must-see if you love impressionism. It has a great collection of Monet paintings and also of famous artists such as Berthe Morisot. The building itself is beautiful. The temporary exhibition "The theatre of emotions" was really great, informative and well-organised. Best to plan at least two hours to visit it all. Staff is friendly. Better to pay for your tickets onsite, it is cheaper.

    I would not have even thought about going to this museum if my husband hadn't advocated for us to try it out. I am so incredibly glad that he did! This was the most unique and beautiful way I have ever seen classic works of art displayed. Gorgeous and worth every penny of the admission price. An incredible combination of light, art, and music.

    This is a small jewel of a museum, a chance to see how an upper-middle-class family (with an art collecting obsession) lived. As it's their family home, this is a small museum that can be easily enjoyed (without rushing) within an hour, making it a great change from the mega-museums of Paris (e.g. Louvre and Orsay) and particularly good with kids. The audio guide is interesting, the place is uncrowded even in summer, and they have a lovely cafe for some refreshments.

    This is an outstanding cultural museum, with a great collection very well presenting in a modern fashion. It covers almost all the world outside Europe and North America with fascinating displays of archeology, art, music and every day life in remote parts of the planet.

    We enjoyed our 2 hour visit here. The building is stunning and makes the experience. Beautiful ceilings inside and out, statues and amazing entrance.
    The collection is not large but well displayed. Some information in English, I used Google translate for the rest, there is an audio guide available.
    Definitely worth a visit, especially if, like us, you have been to Paris before and are looking for something new.

    If you're into Dali or art in general this is a good way to spend an hour or two. It's not a huge museum but it's well stocked in terms of the art itself and the information it provides on Dali. Also it's central location lends itself to being part of a day in the area. Worth a visit!

    I really recommend to visit here, because the collection and building are worth to see. We liked the most about the exhibitions on the top floors. Only problem is that it is not possible to see everything in one visit. This was our second or third visit.

    I enjoyed this museum and glad we stopped in, but it is not nearly as impressive as their museum in Barcelona. On the day we attended they were also in the middle of an exhibit of one of his daughters, Maya, which was interested and of value. It is a big venue.

    In any city of great museums this one would be #1 or #2. But in Paris it is a hidden gem. If at all interested in Asian art please go. One forgets how brand French colonies spread. This will remind you of power, reach, style.

    The Musee d'Art Moderne de Paris (MaM) is a great museum to visit and the general entry is free !! My husband and I enjoyed walking around the different exhibits and really enjoyed our time.

    A note though is they are closed on Mondays.

    The museum's permanent collections, with more than 15,000 works of art, show the diverse art trends of the 20th century: cubism, Ecole de Paris, abstract art, new realism, etc. The museum houses works by Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, Georges Braque and Yves Klein. In parallel to these permanent collections, large temporary exhibitions are organized. A cafeteria and bookshop are some of the additional services offered by the museum.

    Great place to come while in Paris. Budget friendly activity to do all year round.

    They have a lovely collection. We visited because it was raining. Glad we did though if the sun was out, I probably would have skipped it.

    This huge expo palace has been the site of many extraordinary shows, but now is closed for extensive renovations. You can get a good sense of its beauty and size by walking around, but it's a shame I could not go inside.
