It all depends on your interests and, first and foremost, on the number of visits you made to Paris or are planning to make, and, finally, on the length of your current visit. If your stay is limited, as it is often the case, by...More

This museum was a delightful contrast to the rushed and busy Louvre next door. We enjoyed the glimpse into upper class everyday life, looking at furnishings, decor, and art all displayed together in period rooms. The contemporary temporary exhibition "Margiela, les années Hermès" brought everything...More

The crowds at the Louvre can be a bit overwhelming, so we were happy to find this nearby extension, quiet, untrammeled by the masses, with glorious exhibits, extravagance objects of French history.

Smallish museum that costs €11 to get into. Each exhibit room is fairly small and floors 5 and above were closed for renovation. No comparison to the Victoria and Albert museum in London!

Le Musee des Art Decoratifs is sublime. Artfully crafted exhibitions, both modern and anciens, and from fashion to furniture, the museum offers intelligent and elegant presentations of the decorative arts. It is a treat to experience!

The museum is best known for its period rooms -- Art Nouveau, Neo-rennaissance, etc -- featuring furniture, jewelry, and objets across centuries in a collection that will make you swoon. But special exhibits are more contemporary and set off the permanent collection well. We saw...More

Empty water bottles not allowed, if you’re a man apparently. To enter, I was forced to throw mine away by a grumpy security guard. This was even after I demonstrated it was clearly empty by unscrewing the cap and holding it upside down. Yes, empty...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or

I just checked the FNAC website and the Dior tickets for online sales are "complet" which means finished. The exhibit is only on until January 7, so I do not know if you plane to be in Paris by then. If so, you could check... More
