We first tried to visit the museum in 1998, but it he gallery we particularly wanted to see , Art Deco, was closed. We were told it would reopen in two years, so we returned three years later, to be sure.....whole place was shut....so it was a real triumph to get inside recently.

The name of this museum may suggest furniture, but we viewed jewelry, buttons, and the evolution of French attire In the 1700s-1900s. My daughter loves fashion, and we learned that this museum has a focus on French costume and design so we visited it on our last full day. We weren't disappointed. We did not isn't every section of the... More

Just five minutes from the Louvre this museum is far away more quiet. There are no crowds, no long waiting time, you just walk in. And than you are facing with a lot of interesting art pieces, a lot Art Deco and Art Noveaux as well. If you like decorative art than go and visit it!

I am biased because I design so every level, exhibition and works on view was inspiring. I had the great fortune of seeing the Dries Van Noten show in the summer of 2014 while in Paris. Part of the museums extensive collection of beautiful objects, arts, and more were apart of the show. Stunning. Be sure to look at the... More

We spent a great afternoon wandering around this amazing museum right next to the Louvre. It's in a great central area, but doesn't have the annoying crowds of The Louvre. There's whole rooms including famed French designer Jeanne Lanvin's apartments from 1922. There's everything from medieval to contemporary furniture and objets d'art. Styles include Empire, Art Nouveau and Art Deco.... More

This is something they can relate to and there are absolutely no crowds. In fact, we got there at their 11am opening and had basically the entire museum to ourselves. There were more guards than visitors. Several floors of furniture design through the decades, costumes, when we were there they had an overwhelming exhibit of decorative buttons. Also a very...

Great museum if you have a halfway - not only a wide range of aspects of design covered but also very quiet on the weekday that I went which was a welcome relief from crowds in Paris. Can also get some great shots of the gardens from the upper floors. Managed to see the Unbuttoned exhibition that is currently on... More

If you are at all interested in the decorative arts, this is truly a must. We went specifically for the button exhibit, but also viewed the other collections. Very, very nice. Staff there are very friendly and helpful.
