€8 Entrance for three (small) halls. A total cacophony of styles and periods just mashed together with no logical sense whatsoever. On top of this the permanent collection displayed the worst art pieces of what a famous artist could offer. I have never felt so disappointed in a museum. A genuine tourist trap. I did not see the temporary exhibits... More

We saw the very good exhibition about Cleopatra. There was much to see, from sculptures and paintings about her. She seems to have captured the imagination of many of history's best painters. What I liked best was the short movie about movies about her. They also showed the clothing that Elizabeth Taylor used in the movie about Cleopatra. The clothing... More

Beautiful abstracts, pieces exposed in a spacious, well lit environment. The room wasn't overcrowded. I had time to sit and enjoy the works on display. I would definitely recommend this gallery as an alternative to the hectic, overcrowded mainstream haunts of old. Chu Teh-Chun is definitely someone to discover, relatively unknown to me until I discovered his work back at... More

We had the opportunity to visit all 3 exhibitions: Brueghel dynasty, Goya and mdernity and Chu Teh-Chun. Brueghel and Chu Teh Chun beeing the best. The las painter offers rich and bright colours, just marvelous.

First of all, this gallery is somewhat hard to find and you have to go down the street to buy your ticket from a ticket booth unless the exhibit you want to see is located in the building where you buy the ticket. Lighting could have been better but the exhibition itself was well organized. It took about an hour... More

The Pinacotheque is a great addition to the panoply of Paris museums, with its multiple venues and steady stream of exhibits greatly increasing the odds that you will find something of interest (and with tickets available!) at any given moment. The Breughel exposition is fully up to museum standards, with lots of background information, and a large number and rich... More

This gallery shouldn't be at the top of your list, but it's a nice place to visit if you are interested in one of the current special exhibits. When I was there, I saw ancient Mayan jade art - beautiful pieces but not a large exhibit. The entrance price was too high for the few rooms I could see; it... More

Don't let the steep entrance price put you off - skip a meal and go and see the Exhibitions. I asked for and was given a very detailed document translating everything into English and although I battled a bit to read the typed document in the dark interiors, I managed and found the guide to be extremely comprehensive and very...

This exhibit embodied all the pros and cons of a private museum's temporary exhibition. Since at least 90% of the exhibits were drawn from just 3 private collections, you are hardly likely to see the creme de la creme of art nouveau. On the other hand, it does afford you the opportunity to become acquainted with less well-known artists that... More

I was lucky enough to be in Paris for the Art Nouveau/Tamara de Lempicka exhibit. Art Nouveau was the main attraction for me, and that exhibit was excellent, but Lempicka stole the show and taught me a lot about an artist whose work I did not know well. Both exhibits are supplemented with videos, including films from the 1900 World... More
