  • This is a MUST see. Having a guide walk us through and share the background of the art was super helpful.

  • This is undoubtedly one of the best museums in the world. The 5th floor impressionist galleries and Van Gogh section can get a bit crowded. But there is so much more to the museum beyond the 5th...

  • One of my favorite museums in Paris for the temporary and regular exhibitions. The diversity of the collections is simply impressive. Another interesting side is the architecture of the museum. Last and not least the unique restaurant which is a regular step in every visit I do to this place. The view is stunning, the interior is so rich (ceilings, walls,…). I recommend this place with no hesitation!
  • My #1 museum in the world. I've been to this museum twice only and can't wait to go back again. I am a big fan of impressionism and this place is heaven for someone like me. This museum taught me lots of great painters and their beautiful paintings. Every time I go to Louvre, I feel like overwhelmed but this place just makes me happy. They also have a great French fine restaurant in the museum. You can have a great view of Paris from this museum. Don't miss the chance to take beautiful photos at this museum!
