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.

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

This is really interesting little space with a very hospitable staff and interesting exhibitions. We saw a Pieter Hugo exhibition called Kin which was just excellent. The video by the photographer in the permanent gallery at the top was also helpful. Definitely a great place...More
