Long lines to buy a ticket, pretty crowded, but well worth it. This was head and shoulders above any other exhibition we saw in Paris. Go.

This is a place you definitely do not want to go: expensive, crowded and misleading! I've seen a number of their exhibitions and every single time it was a disappintment (Goya, Klimt...). Their communication and advertising services are very skilled: every time they sell a famous artist but when you get there the artists' works are few and far between.... More

The Pinacotheque has an exhibit on graffiti art called Le Pressionnisme 1970-1990. I initially rushed through the exhibit wondering why I came and then began to notice a very 60's kind of revolutionary feeling. I then revisited the exhibit and was glad I did. The artists are mainly Americans, but sadly, all the text was in French. I wish there... More

Every time in Paris I go to The Louvre and D´Orsay. This time I went to see this place. It had a wonderful exposition of George Klimt. The Pinacotheque is located at Madeleine just a side of Maison Fauchon, where you can have a magnificent lunch, choosing in a greatest deli what you want to eat.

We visited the Klimt exhibition - which focus on the Beethoven freezes and on Vienna and the art of his time. The queue was quite long - so we had to wait about 30 min. It is a bit cramped inside, and all the information on the walls are in french only. Which means you will miss quite a few... More

Really disappointing.!!Expected to see much more about Klimt. The entire tour didn't last one hour. Better buy a ticket to Vienna to see the real deal!!

visited a fantastic collective on Gustav Klimt and his successors, everyone from Egom Von Schiele, Carl Moll, and a series of sculptures, as well as paintings representing the times of expressionism once Klimt pioneered in this movement, erotic drawings, some of his most famous works, Judith and Salome the original femme fatale

An outstanding exposition of Gustav Klimt and his generation, with special reference to the artistic relationship between artists and intelectuals in Vienna and Paris during the pre WWI. A must visit!

Klimt exposition has been not satisfactory for the following reasons: too many people all together in small rooms. I know that it can look unkind to make a line and ask people to wait outside, but it's more awful to be crowded in small spaces fighting for looking at the masterpieces, with true difficulty. Moreover there are some posters explaining... More

This was a wonderful and fun exhibition. I cannot say enough good things about the Art and narration accompanying the art. Unfortunately, I just want to rant about the exhibit space, the organization of the exhibit and the management of the space. First as others have said the space is too space for the size of the crowd admitted. The... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
