if you're interested in the decorative arts, this museum is a must. we love Art Deco, and their display of this was outstanding. but the way they do all the periods and and the decades of the 20th century is pure French class. Esay to get to, simple to follow, and a total joy.

Decide what you want to see first. We have a craving for Art Nouveau furniture and the collection is amazing. See 4th and 5th. floors. Great and informative audio guides. Navigation through the museum is not excellent but having a specific destination helps greatly. Don't try to run through the museum and pass by the exhibits, savor the moments. (..that... More

This museum has a beautiful and extensive display of glass, furniture, ceramics, etc. Keep climbing the stairs and you'll be rewarded with some great collections eg. chairs, and good views.

A top notch Museum conveniently located adjacent to the rear of the Louvre, near the Palais Royale. Has both a permanent collection and special exhibits. Personally enjoy the Art Deco and Art Nuveau selections. Interesting layout with multistory construction. Could use more signage in English, so using an Audioguide or iPad app works out fine. ...

This museum was filled with so many different pieces. The first exhibit I saw was Asian fashion. Then I proceeded to the jewelry exhibit which was my favorite part. So many beautiful pieces to see. I did get yelled at for taking a picture of the jewelry by the guard but everyone was taking pictures throughout the museum so I'm... More

Is not easy to see a good collection of textiles, and the collection announced in this museum looked really attractive. Unfortunately, it seems like the textiles are only exhibited a couple of times a year, so I missed it. I also missed the toys and the advertising collections, probably because of the temporary exhibitions occupying their place. Interesting collection of... More

If the line in front of the Louvre is too much for you this is the place to go. A short walk from the subway/metro stop musee louvre. Opens at 11 and little to no que. An extensive collection of glass work from all ages right up to the present day. A good overview of interior designs & furniture of... More

We wanted to visit Musee d'Orsay on a Tuesday - and so did hundreds of other people, the pass holder line was as long as the ticket line. So we decided instead to wander over to Musee des Arts Decoratifs and I am glad we did. Along with wonderful permanent collections from art deco and renaissance periods (with many set... More

We loved the art Nouveau and Art Deco displays. Amazing glass pieces and furniture. This is only a small part of the museum. There are several floors with displays starting back in time until the present. Lots and lots a beautiful pieces to see. No lines! Just walk in!

We spent a day to visit this amazing museum and we enjoyed every minute of it!!!! There are so many displays and a lot of objects which are organised by theme and periods and that makes this museum very interesting and varied (every room is different!!!). We had the audio guides and that helped a lot to have more information... More
