My boyfriend loves modern art and he really liked this museum. It is big enough to feel worthy of the ticket price but small enough that you can see everything within 2-3 hours. It is a perfect size before you feel overwhelmed or bored. It...More

The coolest part of the whole batch of shows and exhibits was the Virtual Reality artistic representation by a Korean artist that made me realize expression is no longer limited by our regular visual arts methods

Went there for a casual business dinner. The room is stunning and the crowd was very cool. Service was east and accommodating and the food was superior. Try the artichoke salad and truffle pasta. Good for couple, friends etc., Paris at its best.

museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill
the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher,

are small art galleries and homes of historical
