We visited the Pinacothèque for the first time yesterday, rather wondering why someone would create a private art museum in Paris in the 21st century. We enjoyed our visit to the current exhibit on Leondardo da Vinci, based on the Codex Atlanticus and on models made recently from his designs. The Pinacotheque exists primarily to display touring exhibits, so all... More

There are 2 pinacotheques exhibition halls in Paris . We visited the Pinacotheque 2 which is the newest one of the two. It is also of a more pleasant setting with fewer labyrinths rooms where you have to fight your way to move. The exhibits ( from Rubens to van Dyck ) were well displayed with great explanations . The... More

While the tittle overstates the times form these two painters, the show was exquisite. Much of the work was about Flemish floral paintings as well as portraiture. It demonstrates the advances state of imagery while the Dutch were ascending in the world economy and how that wealth generated so much great art. An exhibit, while small, well worth seeing.

From Rubens to to Van Dyck is what attracted us this time. This is Pinacotheque 2, a space that is somewhat more comfortable than the original. But the price, for the 50 something works seen, was not worth it. Two really good works, the rest just okay. In the permanent collection (same ticket) there are some interesting things, but nothing... More

It was opened in 2007, as the first privat museum. Since than they organize temporary exhibitions, in very high quality. Now they had an exhibition about the Viennaise secession and Klimt. We have seen already various exhibitions and they were well organized and good. The complaint from some reviewer that it is overcrowded is true, but in comparison to Museé... More

It’s impossible not to sympathize with the reviewers who complain about the crowds here, but that shouldn’t keep you away: this is a thoughtful little show that sets Klimt’s work in the context of the Viennese Secession (a revolutionary event every bit as important as the Impressionist movement). Juxtapositions of his work and the work of his influential contemporaries highlight... More

Street art expo was good, but a bit out of context. Klimt expo is a rip off. Only 2 originals. For the price, not worth it

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

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.
