This is the second time I've been here in ten years. Fantastic modern art in a arty building. Would have appreciated some more thorough guidance on the collections. Hard to understand which floors are available to the public.

Museum? Fantastic. Building? Stunning. View? Out of this world. Cafeteria (on the main level) STAY AWAY. My visit to this cafeteria was on Thursday August 27 at 5:00 pm, and the staff at this time were horrendous. Three guys. I requested a muffin, and one of the guys retrieved it with tongs, then proceeded to throw it like a football... More

The building is extrodinary. Children free under 18!! Well worth a visit. The art is amazing, unique and fantastic to see. Once in a life time visit. The downside like the whole of Paris is expect to queue. Definately worth waiting for though.

At begin it seems a shopping center... But then, the third, fourth and fifth plans are fantastic! Must see.

I went because I had seen many pictures and because people talked to me about it very well. I must say it disappointed me. It look very neglected.

Interesting trip. We went close to closing time. The trip up the outside allowed for some nice pictures. With the museum pass, you do not get the top floor. The exhibits themselves were unique, but we would recommend going only if you are in to that style of art.

I was really hoping that this would be a quirky and interesting place to visit, but I found it quite boring with only 10% of the exhibits entertaining/good (or generally worth looking at). About 30-40% were terrible....but I am definitely no artist or art follower (I like what I see....simple). Hence my poor rating. However, if modern art of all... More

Meh. Attached photo (an actual exhibit item, I kid you not) speaks volumes about what you'll see here.

We loved this art gallery. We didn't have to queue at all and it was free entry. A beautiful collection of modern art. It's so big that I highly recommend going to the 5th floor first as that is where all the famous pieces are.

A very unique place, the building itself is a work of art. A rare collection of all the big modernist names, so you can meet a lot of familiar works you love. Fantastic art stores in the building. Fun to just sit outside and star at the building or the fountain outside. And of course, the Marais, is the coolest... More

Staying in Les Halles

Neighborhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
