SO much value for money. We booked in advance to avoid queues and loved the time slot system, which meant the exhibit was never overcrowded. While photography was allowed, the timing system meant that it was easy to wait for others to finish looking at a certain piece and take pictures in a respectful, unobtrusive way. The collections were curated... More

The Grand Palais is a wonderful building you can see from all over Paris. It's a rounded glass and metal structure from about 130 years ago and has both class and beauty. The building is a forum for exhibitions, and thus your experience will vary based upon what is showing. We visited to see this building and the avant-garde Jean... More

Good Exhibition but only a few more days before it ends. would recommend booking online to ensure availability of tickets and avoid the 2 hour queue to get. Ticket is for a specific time and can be bought on the day. you can take pictures inside which is great.

One of the best exemple of the Beaux-Arts architecture. Built for the Universal Expostion of 1900 iron, steel and glass. It is a masterpiece of the world architecture. The main exhibition hall you can visit only if there is an event, like fashion show. But you can get in for the smaller exhibitions, like the Velazques in May.

The Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition was exceptionally well done. As a guy who could care less about fashion, I nevertheless found it fascinating, and the talking mannequins were both fun and technologically interesting. My other half raved about it, with good reason, and her friends screamed with envy when she posted herself among the models on Facebook.
