  • Visited during December and it always seemed busy so we queued one day. Simply put, this wasn't to our taste however like most exhibitions there's always one or two items you find interesting but over...  more »
  • We were able to discover the photographer ren hang tragically disappeared at the age of 29 years: a photographic shock! The museum itself is very nice alternating with the stone of France and the conventional panels. The exhibits are varied and change frequently, the quality of your experience will of course depend on the artist (s) presented. The queue at the entrance can be long: buy your tickets on the Museum's website and you can go through the cutting-line.

  • To be honest, I expected something better. There was an extremely long queue for an installation at 1st floor that really, really wasn't worth the waiting. Overall it was an interesting and modern museum, but could improve significantly.
  • The European House of Photography is located in Saint-Paul, in the center of Paris. From the outside the place is very beautiful, with elegant little gardens. I visited this place recently to discover JR’s work. The selection of works was very good and the way the works of the artist were displayed was nice. This is definitely a must go for photography lovers and enthusiasts.
