I went expecting to stay for 90 minutes and stayed for four hours. A magnificent museum in all respects, with objects beautifully displayed and clearly explained. Excellent temporary exhibits as well. There were plenty of other people, but nowhere was there a sense of crowding.

I loved it, there were some very nice information and pieces. I learned a lot. Their audio visit is for free. I just junk they might have spent too much on the early stages of decorations and could have made more about the modern stages... It's a must-do if you are done with all the touristy stuff to do in... More

We visited this as an alternative to the Louvre as having recently suffered the crowds at the Chateau of Versailles we did not wish to repeat this experience so soon. We were not disappointed as we seemed to have the place virtually to ourselves with plenty of time to admire the exquisite furniture and room settings. If you like Art... More

I've been looking forward to visiting the revamped version of this museum for ages and found myself rather disappointed. The layout is awful, placed into a wing of the louvre along Rue de Rivoli. The exhibit rooms are cramped and it effectively feels like they have crammed items into a corridor....which they have. I particularly wanted to see the Art... More

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 museum covers a broad spread of... More

Very large but not crowded with many varied amazing pieces and all within close proxmity to the Louvre combine to make this museum well worth a visit.

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
