I only gave it three stars because I was very annoyed I had to line up in the cold and wind and rain even though I had purchased a timed entry ticket. The people managing the lines were less than helpful. The building is beautiful...More

This museum isn't as well known as the Musee D'orsay or the Louvre, of course, but it is a must-see. The architecture alone, by Frank Gehry who did the Guggenheim, is worth the visit. Then, the modern art inside is wonderful. There is an terrific...More

The building is stunning and the Basquiat and Schiele exhibitions were wonderful but the whole place is not very visitor friendly. Starting with the massive queue, forcing people to wait in the cold for more than 30 minutes. Having got into the building, there were...More

I am a big fan of Basquiat and I felt so lucky to be able to see this exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. The Fondation Louis Vuitton is a beautiful building with great views over Paris (go visit the rooftop). When you arrive inside...More

From the L.V. shuttle experience till the end, beside a unique exhibit, my conclusion is lack of organisational skills and hospitality management. L.V. can surely sell high-end pieces of luggage and bags beautifully designed and known worldwide for its unmistakable printed leather and pvc. but...More

This place is not a hidden gem any more, everyone knows about it. So the experience is dependent on the time of your visit, and you need lots of patience if caught with a large crowd. This place cannot cope with large groups. Long wait...More

I disliked queuing for such a long time in the cold and the drizzle, about 1 hour during which I became desirous of a coffee which made it seem worse. We went in finally and there was a LONG queue for the restaurant. We queued...More

A gem few tourists seem to have discovered, we loved the FLV, the building itself is a masterpiece and the Basquiat exhibit was really good too!

Hello, you should ask, the do have time for closure at 6pm in summer. Probably if you do find a concert or an special event it will be open. I do think you should see opening hours the day you want to visit.
