I had never been here before despite having lived in Paris for a year. The building itself is magnificent and the art on display is great.

One of Paris' only free museums. It's a beautiful historic building right at the centre of the city near Arc de Triomphe. We spent a short time here as a family in May. The garden is a nice area of tranquillity where you can grab...More

This is a very nice museum. There was not charge to visit. It has 3 levels of art - paintings, sculptures, furnishings, jewels, etc. It was an enjoyable visit. I would recommend a visit here on your trip to Paris.

The Museum has mesmerising architecture associated with it. Its close proximity from the Pont de alexandre 3 sure does not let you pass by the beauty without an overwhelming glance through this museum

The entire area around the Petit Palais starting from Les Invalides, passing the Pont Alexandre III and the columns with the gold statues leading up to the larger palace and across the street, the Petit Palace, is worth walking around. You will be taking picture...More

Lovely to take a stroll through this free museum. Small, but perfectly formed. Some lovely pieces, and a good gift shop. Cafe was nice and we sat and had tea while we looked at some art on the walls of the cafe.

The cafe was self-service when I was there and the line was long and slow even for a beverage so I did not eat there. The outdoor part was not set up for outdoor seating in winter. I would think it would be more enjoyable to... More
