This is the City of Paris' collection, full of treasures and free admission in a gorgeous environment built for an international expo. Great garden cafe. Special expos are terrific but they have an admission charge.
I’m not a great fan of museums but we stumbled across this one and as it was free and the building looked impressive, we decided to take a look. It has an amazing collection of statues as well as paintings - some beautiful works, even...More

The cafe was self-service when I was there and the line was long and slow even for a beverage so I did not eat there. The outdoor part was not set up for outdoor seating in winter. I would think it would be more enjoyable to sit outside than inside when there are outdoor tables and the weather warms up because the interior courtyard is quite lovely. Even if you just walk around the garden you will enjoy it.
