This small museum, easily found behind la Madeleine, is a real treasure if you are attracted to one on all of the special exhibits that they present each year. . I have been very priviledged to see their Mexican jade mask, their Modigiiani, their Klimpt,...More

We visited the Pinacothèque for the first time yesterday, rather wondering why someone would create a private art museum in Paris in the 21st century. We enjoyed our visit to the current exhibit on Leondardo da Vinci, based on the Codex Atlanticus and on models...More

There are 2 pinacotheques exhibition halls in Paris . We visited the Pinacotheque 2 which is the newest one of the two. It is also of a more pleasant setting with fewer labyrinths rooms where you have to fight your way to move. The exhibits...More

From Rubens to to Van Dyck is what attracted us this time. This is Pinacotheque 2, a space that is somewhat more comfortable than the original. But the price, for the 50 something works seen, was not worth it. Two really good works, the rest...More

It’s impossible not to sympathize with the reviewers who complain about the crowds here, but that shouldn’t keep you away: this is a thoughtful little show that sets Klimt’s work in the context of the Viennese Secession (a revolutionary event every bit as important as...More

Street art expo was good, but a bit out of context. Klimt expo is a rip off. Only 2 originals. For the price, not worth it

Long lines to buy a ticket, pretty crowded, but well worth it. This was head and shoulders above any other exhibition we saw in Paris. Go.

This is a place you definitely do not want to go: expensive, crowded and misleading! I've seen a number of their exhibitions and every single time it was a disappintment (Goya, Klimt...). Their communication and advertising services are very skilled: every time they sell a...More
