Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: A stone's throw from the city's most prestigious haute couture boutiques, the Musee Galliera is housed in a Renaissance-inspired palace. With its programme of temporary, themed exhibitions - legendary designers, fashion icons, clothing styles, influences and inspirations - the museum draws upon its priceless, often delicate archives to shine a light on the creative spirit which has inspired fashion from the eighteenth century right up to the present day. The museum has no permanent collections.

This small museum is currently showing an exhibition of the work of Martin Margiela, it gives an interesting insight into the rarified world of high fashion, well displayed with lots of easy to read guidance and information to tell the story. Not for everyday consumption, probably a big hit for those in the world of fashion and design, but still an interesting way to spend 1-2 hours in Paris. Beautiful building.

Palais Galliera isn't large. Neither is the Martin Margiela's retrospective.

But you can have a glimpse of all the designer's collections (from Spring-Summer 1989 to Spring-Summer 2009) and see what a talent he's. The exhibits include some of his iconic pieces.

Highly recommended, especially for fashion lovers. The exhibition lasts until 15 July 2018.

You may also combine Palais Galliera with another exhibition which focuses on his years working for the luxury brand Hermes in Les Arts Décoratifs.

This Fashion museum only houses temporary exhibitions.
We went to see the Dalida exhibit, which was very well presented, you could almost touch the garments.
Even though the museum is rather small, it is well organised and run efficiently.

I was so looking forward to going here to see all the beautiful fashion that people had posted pictures of on Tripadvisor. So disappointed. They do not have a permanent exhibit. Check to see which designer is there before you buy a ticket. This museum looks large from the outside but only a very small portion seems to be used for temporary exhibits. We ended up at the Fortuny exhibit. Not even sure who this is. We walked through. We got through the exhibit and I went and asked where the other parts were and the man said this is it. So little for 10 Euro....should have been more like 2 Euro. So disappointing. Honestly the worst museum I have ever been to in my life. Would never go back and would never recommend.

Quite little exposition for 8€, without a discount for students not studying in Europe... It took us less than an hour to go around even though we very much took our time. The collection was beautiful and quite complete.
