A wonderful Karrel Appel exhibit with very few visitors was outstanding. A very good presentation and overview of his works, really well done! The remainder of the museum is terrific. I was totally alone in the rooms that have Matisse's dancer murals. A very special...More

The museum premises are nice and the Matise room is striking. The other collection are varied, it all depends on the exhibition that is on at present. There's a lovely cafe with outside courtyard one can enjoy an unexpensive lunch.

We mostly enjoyed the varied collection. At least 2 floors were closed at the time of our visit. The deco building is lovely from the outside fountain.

The Braque frescoes "la danse" and Raoul Dufy's "la fée électricité " can ne s'en for free. Other temporary exhibitions are too small.

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
