This art gallery is free to enter but you have to pay for special exhibitions. It is a bit confusing when you enter. There is a stunning mural called "The Electric Fairy" and a really good Matisse. However the day we visited a lot of...More

These three very different artists knew each other and influenced each other. This very large,well presented exhibition displays many of their best works as well as some lesser known ones sometimes from private collections. It also shows that they all worked on costumes and decors...More

Visited the museum just to see the jewelry exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art. Collection was impressive.

This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive
Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National
museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,
florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury
and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most
famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings
are small art galleries and homes of historical
