“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

In the museum, you can see lots of pictures that Albert Kahn took all around the world. The garden is very lovely and peaceful, you can sit and relax between different kind of trees and plants. I would recommend it any time of the year.

“A hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Lovers of Japanese Gardens should not skip this little gem, hidden away near the end of the Boulogne Billancort Metro Line 10. An interesting little Musee and beautiful grounds will reward your visit.

“Great museum and fantastic gardens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This museum is a real hidden gem! There aren't that many tourists yet, but it is worth a detour for sure! The French, English and especially the Japanese gardens are wonderful. The museum has an interesting collection of historic pictures and movies: they give a lively insight into the period during and after the First World War.

Just to be sure: the museum will be renovated between January 2015 and Summer 2017 - but it will not close its doors during these months.

“Beware the cookie monster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

It's been raining all week so when a sprinkle of sunshine appeared we set out to walk in the garden for our daughter's birthday......yes everything the reviewers say is true....however don't even think of eating or drinking anything here. We took a packet of biscuits and two drinks and were sitting in the rose garden when a surly and aggressive security man almost ran up to us and informed us ( in no certain terms - in French) that we had no right to do so! Much of our enjoyment of the garden dissipated immediately. We found no mention of this rule anywhere, so beware the cookie monster who lurks within.....

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Located at the end of metro line 10, this is off the beaten tourist path. Wonderful collection of gardens -- Japanese, French,English, a Japanese village -- a great place to walk. The museum is an entree into the life and passions of Albert-Kahn. A fascinating man and an incredible collection of photographs.
