“The Guimet Museum boasts an unrivalled collection from Asian civilizations with over 20,000 objects covering seven millennia of art. The Himalayan collection is a highlight but there are also collections covering China, Japan, India, Korea, Afghanistan, Southeast Asia, and Central Asia.”
“While it doesn’t have its own permanent collection, Palais de Tokyo is easily one of the best places in Paris to catch contemporary art exhibitions. As well as celebrating emerging French and international talent, the gallery has in the past also hosted exhibitions from big stars in the art world such as France’s JR and New York’s Guerilla Girls. Always forward-looking, its exhibitions often place an emphasis on technology and interactivity, whilst remaining accessible to those unfamiliar with the world of contemporary art. The building itself features impressive Neoclassical architecture, and the court at the back has a trendy bar with views of the seine and the Eiffel Tower.”
“Regular temporary exhibitions dedicated to great Haute couture designers. A nice and peaceful garden. ”
“Fans of Monet and Impressionism, this museum contains good representations from his life's work. It was Claude Monet's son, Michel, who donated his father's collection to Musée Marmotton in 1966. Up until then the museum contained mostly pieces from the time of Napoleon, so today the museum is a mixture of the two distinct, opposing collections.”
