The reviews of this museum art accurate. Loved the shop on the ground level and found stunning views of the city from the windows in the 6th and 9th floors where the 1940 to present exhibits are.

I now have a better understanding of eight centuries of Gallic taste in interior decoration,but the most amazing thing is that this unique collection of some 150,000 ranging from the Sevres porcelain to an entire Pullman car from the Art Deco - was put together exclusively from private donations This is home to a thousand ghosts,mostly good ones, i hope,...

The Musée des arts décoratifs, part of the Louvre complex is somehow underrated. That's a problem in Paris: as the town has a "fab four" of museums (Louvre, Beaugourg, D'Orsay, Versailles), it may seem the others are less important. They're not, they keep great surprises for the visitor. This is the case. If one is interested in house, interiors, clothes... More

Bastille Day 2013 - Paris was a'buzz - Military uniforms every where --- so instead of watching the march I went to the D'Orsay Musee. Fantastic, I had the whole place to myself! Now the parade was over I strolled over to the Museum of Decorative Arts - as I approached, a crowd seemed to be gathering at the entrance,... More

I am absolutely passionate about the history of fine furniture and decorative items for the home. If you are as well make the Musee des Arts decoratifs your first stop when in Paris. This museum has a beautifully curated collection that looks at this side of the fine arts in both centuries long gone 14th/15th, and also the recent decades... More

Close to the Louvre this Museum pales in comparison but is well worth a visit. It resembles the V&A museum in London on a smaller scale. The exhibits are for the most part well presented and of a high caliber. However some period rooms are deliberately poorly lit and in some instance that conceit becomes totally irritating as nothing can... More

This is a large and quiet museum adjacent to the Louvre. There are great views from the windows. There is a large selection of interior design items. It was such a peaceful place. Do buy the group ticket to also see Nissim Comando house.

A great museum if you are interested in furniture, jewellery, textiles and interior design. The selection of of 20th century chairs is vast and all originals and on one floor together. One of the best parts of the visit is the building itself, you climb 7 floors in all to the eaves of the roof, make sure you look out... More

We went towards the end of a long day, so decided just to visit the exhibition and skip the permenant collection. The exhibition was on fashion designer Dries Van Notebn, and it was brilliant! It was split up into his various inspirations which gave the exhibition a real depth, and also meant there were also some interesting pieces of art... More
