This show is open every day from 10-6 and on Fridays and Saturday nights, it's open until 10 pm. The show is in the middle of the 11th Arr. in an old foundry at 38 Saint-Maur, so it is not easy to get to, but...More

The Gustav Klimt show was an amazing experience. I believe it may have been the first of its kind, projecting moving art in a warehouse. When we walked in to the space, we were surrounded by Klimt’s beautiful art in ways I would never have...More

Words cannot do this experience justice. You need to go and see it yourself. And the Klimt exhibition is very child friendly. In fact, taking it all in and seeing children moved to dance and swirl made the experience very special.

Somewhere online prior to my trip to Paris I read about this spectacular digital museum opening in Paris. While there are so many things to do in this great city of lights, there is very little time. This is certainly one of the things that...More

Because so much of Paris tourism is about waiting in line, buy tickets on the website in advance! It's a really cool space with light projection shows on the walls. We saw the Klimt exhibit and it was well worth it. The Atelier is in...More

An extraordinary way to experience art. Klimt and Hundertwasser in new dimensions. New technologies make it possible to enjoy art differently. Certainly also for non art lovers to get the taste. Certainly also a fun educational experience for children.

We pre-purchased tickets to the venue which allowed us to go straight through into the show. It is a large building with bare walls where various pieces of art is projected on the walls and floor and beautiful music is played to provide an all-encompassing...More

The only negative about this amazing lightshow is that there weren't many places to sit, other than on the floor. The Klimt images are projected on every surface. Not for people with hypersensitivity to light and certainly not for anyone with epilepsy.

I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this different and interesting immersive way to experience art. I could have spent all day here watching it over and over.

We used the Metro to get there - a few hundred metres walk from the Rue Saint Maur station on line 3. The Metro makes getting around in Paris easy, so choose a hotel convenient to a Metro station would be my tip. And... More

When I visited they weren’t at all strict about the time slots. People were able to stay on and watch the show again.
