Rated 4.5 out of 5

5 Star Rating Beautiful exhibition hall and museum off the Champs Elysees. Rotating exhibitions inevitably showcase amazing talent. While we were there, Rodin was featured. Just looking at the building from outside is enough to make you stop. Worth the visit.

5 Star Rating The free exhibition is astonishing. There are many fine examples of ceramics, sculpture and painting. There is a beautiful garden with a cafeteria inside. All is in French and if you want audio guide in English or other language you have to pay 5 Euro . Totally recommended .

4 Star Rating It was closed when I was there :(. But the outside was just fantastic, would like that you can still see the dome from the inside even if they are working there

5 Star Rating It's a must see if you visit Paris. From the gates to the majestic rooms to the beautiful displays to the gorgeous gardens. Unfortunately it rained so the fountains were off. That didn't deter the guests. BEAUTIFUL!!!!

5 Star Rating Like all of Paris it seems, amazing architecture, history, and grandeur. Lots of various events happening in the various spaces, beautiful gardens and grounds, best to go for a scheduled event. We just showed up and there was not a lot of access as events were beginning the following day. Still a lovely walk around a great structure.
