  • The palm game was actually the ancestor of tennis in 1861 I liked the façade of this building with its fluted columns that was built in 1861 by the architect Viraut. To this day the palm game is mainly a place of exhibition.

  • A unique exhibition of a unique and sensitive artist. Another big congratulations to the curators of the exhibition and to the management of the Musée de Jeu de Paume for this sublime and delicate retrospective of the works of the eternal romantic Sally Mann. "I pray that the angel of uncertainty comes to visit me when I work," says Sally Mann, always in search of perfection and cultivating the beauty of imperfection, of "accident".

  • Outstanding gallery space and consistently good curation of exhibits. The size of the galleries makes for a nicely paced visit. There is a Japanese cafe on-site, which was good for a snack.
  • A nice museum. Not too big so doable if you have only 1.5 hours to fill or so.
