Exhibits re: Dada artist and American photographer were interesting. Museum is worth a stop if you think the current exhibits merit your time. Interior of the building is unremarkable.

This was a gem to visit & the old Jeu de Paume gallery is now a photography space in Paris - it is worth a visit, especially if lucky enough to catch Susan Meiselas's photo stories .

This is probably one for the photography enthusiast. I visited late in the day on a very chilly January afternoon, and the contrast from entering the Louvre or d'Orsay was stark. No queues, just wander up to the door, and be welcomed by a smiling...More

If you are into photography keep an eye on this museum. I saw a terrific exhibit of Ed van der Elsken photos. Easy to get to.

The collection is okay, but unless you're specifically interested in an artist on exhibition, it's not worth the 10 euros entrance fee. There are quite a few other places with better and larger collections of modern/contemporary art in Paris for a similar entrance fee.

Those who say that it is an in and out don't seem to want to see the shows in any depth. It usually takes me about two hours, but then there are usually about three shows running concurrently. As I live in a southern suburb...More

Nice museum laid out well for an exhibition. The exhibition on uprisings was interesting and was political rather then artistic. Although connections between art and uprisings were pointed out. This museum is very near a Metro stop and Ferris wheel at Place de la Concorde,...More
