An excellent museum and a fashion hotspot during the Paris fashion week events, Palais de Tokyo is a beautifully built place with great architecture featuring symmetry and lots of interesting things to do while in paris

How much you enjoy the Palais de Tokyo depends entirely on how much you want to see the artist they are currently exhibiting, it changes and they seem to give full control to a particular artist. The Palais is a two story, minimalist space compared...More

Don't miss the current exhibit on spiders, On Air, by Tomas Saraceno. Spread over the entire museum, this exhibit features spider webs in lucite cubes, lit to display the webs in their astonishing detail. The last room Algo-r (h)i(y)thms is an interactive "jam session," where...More

The good thing about the Palais de Tokyo is that it offers an experience off the beaten path. We saw Tomas Saraceno’s On Air, interesting, not entirely comprehensible but if you just look at the art or even participate in it without giving too much...More

If there is a good exhibition on, go here. Fantastic space. Not hard to get too. It would all depend on the exhibition though. The one we saw was amazing.

This is a huge space to display all forms of modern art and in which there is not a permanent display. Currently they are showing the work of Tomas Saraceno which because of its unusual use of space, light and air is certainly worth seeing.

Come here for a special expo as this museum has large well-lighted spaces. Otherwise the architecture is boring and too dull modern, done for the 1930s World's Fair. Favorite place for skate boarders.

A small modern art museum and i do prefer modern art. They have giant matisses there as well as others. It’s quiet and not crowded. The other wing houses temporary events like the launch of a new jordan basketball shoe. It’s hilarious as the line...More

Was recommended this exhibition (they change) by a 30yr old. Maybe we are too old or too dumb but we just didn't get it. Waste of time.

This is the neighbourhood 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 splendour, 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
