Unusual modern architecture, although not all of it is successful. Come and form your own opinion. Good place for a special expo. A bit of a long walk from the Metro. In the park.

This is a modern art museum near one of the most green parts of the city, Bois de Boulogne, with a modern amazing building with a magical modern architecture. If you have the opportunity look for the building and its architecture guide.

Beautiful Frank Gehry designed building on a park setting. Unfortunately when I visited the art exhibited was lack-luster to my taste. It is definitely worth going to see it, it’s very impressive and different.

This is the private museum of LVMH and the building itself is magical. I go when they have interesting exhibitions on, as i’m only drawn to contemporary art

Located in the Bois de Boulogne, the museum is a nice way to see a more relaxing part of Paris. We had an excellent lunch at the restaurant there. It's worth a visit for the architecture alone.

Easy to book tickets online and easy to find from Paris via the Metro. What an incredibly huge building----hard to photograph with a regular camera. Wide angle lens is a necessity when photographing this impressive building from the outside. I was more mesmerized by the...More
