The grand exhibition hall was not open when we visited which was disappointing. If you hope to see the building you will be disappointed as the Kupka exhibit is only in a small portion of the site, and a architectural uninteresting part as well. As...More

This exposition is interactive and quite interesting. It covers the history from machines drawing at random to robots and computers assisting creativity. The most interesting exhibits to me were those that were interactive, such as blowing in dandelions and causing flowers to wave in the...More

A historic site, with huge exhibition hall and museum complex — nearly always hosting many excellent exhibitions. Located halfway down the Champs-Élysées. Just seen the Kupka exhibition there (see photos): excellent. Rave-rave-rave.

My hope was to see a bit of the building - nothing but dark unfriendly location with poor cafe and very simple. The Kupka exhibition was good but the environment and therefore presentation of the art less than simple.
