Out of the way, hard to find, and small -- but worth visiting if you have the time. This was our second visit. The guest exhibitions are the reason to go. Both times we have been there the photos have been thought-provoking. What few of...More

Very interesting 3 floors of exhibitions. Lots of great Cartier-Bresson photos, both classic and lesser known ones. Such stunning compositions.

Impressive building and garden but… The exhibition was a sheer disappointed! I felt as we paid for nothing. At least we enjoyed very much the architecture of the building designed By Jean Nouvel. Go for the building not for the current exhibition.

This space isn't too centrally located, but from Montparnasse it's just about a 10 minute walk. You might think you're going the wrong way since you'll end up in the middle of a residential area, but it's worth the walk if you like Cartier-Bresson and...More

Out of the way but worth visiting if you have the time. We knew nothing about the special exhibit before we went, but it was excellent (Francesca Woodman). There were very few of Bresson's photos on display.

Wonderful classic photographs by Cartier Bresson and exciting temporary exhibitions (saw Jeff Wall) in a beautiful but hard-to-find building

My boyfriend and I visited this gallery to see a particular exhibition. We found the locations to be a little unusual, but the space itself is very nice, especially the top floor! We weren't particularly impressed with the exhibition we saw, but that's not the...More

I went to the Cartier-Bresson Foundation expecting to see a lot of his work. Unfortunately there is a very small collection housed here on the top floor and the other exhibit was a rather exoticized collection of photographs about Calcutta (the French love Calcutta). The...More
