    If you in love with Art exhibition then this is the place. On the other hand the Building from Architecture point of view is very important to watch and notice the little important little details. Also you can end your visit with a visit to the park next door.

    Incredible museum! Lovely way to spend an afternoon, especially with the park adjacent. Great for children and adults. I would definitely recommend taking a coffee break on the terrace.

    The museum is one of the under-appreciated gems of Paris. Its art collection is phenomenal and well-curated, but it’s the building itself that is the star. One of Gehry’s more approachable and accessible designs, the building never fails to surprise, with new delights around every corner. Make sure to check out the interior stairwell, the only place in the museum where the structure of the building is on display.

    Stunning place. Well worth the visit, travel by the little electric bus from Champs Elysées. Leave yourself the whole day for here. Art work is amazing but cannot compete against the building. Views for the top are amazing.

    Very interesting museum in a fascinating building! Make sure that the specific exhibition interest you before coming, though just walking inside worth the visit anyway. The park next to it is also beautiful and nice for picnic.

    Amazing building. Definitely recommend it because of its unique shape. Perfect for a family walk during the weekend and it has got beautiful terraces where you can gaze upon Paris.

    Great place and for me the best museum in Paris. Very nice building in a fancy park outside of the city center. The art is amazing and it all has there own space, always happy to be there and there terrace on the roof is amazing. This building is more then worth a visit if you are in Paris

    Excellent collection of modern art. The architecture of the building is as beautiful and interesting as the art inside. Amazing and very knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend the 15 min free tours on different galleries. It provides a much better understanding of selected pieces in the collection and increases the appreciation of the different art galleries. Spend some time admiring Paris from the different terraces and make time for the architecture tour. Plan to stay there at least 2.5 to 3 hrs and explore the park afterwards. There’s an amusement park for kids right next to the foundation, so if you are visiting with kids you’ll have access to the park through the museum.

    This gallery is beautiful and designed by Frank Gerry. Very well curated exhibitions and in a beautiful area of Paris away from the madness of the major tourist spots. Highly recommended for livers of contemporary art. Hint...they have a shuttle bus that runs directly to the gallery near the Arc De Triomphe.
