This art museum was built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle. Presently, it also includes the City of Parish Museum of Fine Arts. It is situated on one side of the Grand Palais which was built for the same reason. The museum has an octi-circular courtyard and garden as well. Their columns, grand porch and dome echoing about the Invalides across the river are some of the golden features. The tympanum which depicts the city of Paris along with sculptors and other art work also makes the place iconic.

As others have noted, the collection of early Italian Renaissance paintings is truly excellent. After viewing a dozen rooms of 14th and 15th century masters, the room devoted to Botticelli is startling! Humans with flesh, blood, and mass! And so perfectly lit. Go for the Botticelli’s alone.
Free museum that is nicely done
We were stunned by this place. I have never spent 3 hours in a museum before but you couldn't drag us away! The religious art of the high Middle Ages and the Renaissance blew us away, worth the entrance price ten times over. The statues and paintings (including works by great names such as Botticelli) were stunning. It's a must see.
Great information, history, and wonderful atmosphere. However barely any staff speak English, and not every room has an English translated info card
