This is one of the must visit museums in Paris and a must see building too. The museum often hosts great exhibitions and has a nice gift/bookstore. The building itself is a work of modern art hence worth seeing on its own. It offers a beautiful view over Paris from the roof. The area is also very interesting and lively. One can often find musicians and artists perform or draw in the street around this museum.
Iconic place to be! Take care not to get lost in the entrance (as there are two: one for the library and the other for the museum upstairs). You will some of (the most?) innovative pieces of contemporary art! 🖼️ 🖌️ 🎨
