We loved it... the recent Klimt exhibit even awed my usually museum reluctant husband. Definitely buy tickets in advance on line to avoid long lines...discount tickets are available for students and seniors. Challenging to find, even for us ex-Parisians. Check and bring a map.

Something not to be missed. You can sample the experience on YouTube for a better idea of what it entails. We saw the Gustav Klimpt exhibit and it is hard to put into words the feeling you get watching these images constantly changing, accompanied by...More

The show is on a 45 minute loop, which includes all three exhibitions. All are outstanding. Stay for at least an hour and just absorb it all.

Sorry for late reply, only just saw your question. Yes, I believe there is a cloakroom, or certainly somewhere to leave a bag. Almost every attraction in Paris seems to have something available. Hope you go, it is... More
