The newest addition to the Parisian skyline is the Foundation Louis Vuitton museum. Designed by Frank Gehry, the museum displays an impressive collection of contemporary art. The museum houses Arnault’s private collection, including works by Pierre Huyghe, Gerhard Richter, Ellsworth Kelly, Taryn Simon, Sarah Morris, Christian Boltanski and Thomas Schutte. Beside these collections, the museum also hosts splendid light installations done by Danish Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.

A very interesting structure for architectural enthusiasts. It is a well done piece. If touring Paris one can have it on their bucket list. Easy to access. There is a gallery and a restaurant & coffee shop here as well. Located along 8 Avenue du Mahatma Gandhi.
Must see when in Paris! Fascinating building outside and inside! Great exhibition and shopping point! Inside there is a great restaurant but you need to make a reservation a day earlier. Inside and outside space is full of fun, and when you get on a top of a building there is a lady selling the best ice cream! The view from the top is spectacular
Fantastic expositions, frequently renewed... with really nice guides available for you to introduce the artist, the context of the expo. Even if you do not enjoy one of those expo, you'll be glad to discover the building itself !
A magnificent facility to appreciate art in a rather unexpected place.Its design is a technological innovation. Climb up and onto the roof, amongst the sails to see Paris's unique skyline. Architecture inspired by Grand Palais!
I'm not trained in art, but did find the art in here intriguing and interesting. Some - even thought-provoking. Make sure to make time to check out the garden by the expo
