Great gallery, we were there for the Alphonse Mucha show and were very impressed. Definitely buy your tickets ahead of time though, we ended up waiting quite a while in line.
Wonderful exhibition of Mucha's work! 🤗 If you are a fan of art nouveaux, then this is an absolute must see! I loved the collection and admired the beauty of the lines and the light in his work. ENJOY!!! I attended the second day of the opening and it was quite crowded at 10:30am. Best to buy your tickets online in advance. 😉
I can't speak for every exhibition because I've only visited once but Mucha was amazing, from the selection to the information (which was available in many languages and very easy to follow.)
The exposition was quite good and extensionally documented. However the illumination was poor and the room was packed.
Exceptionally curated exhibit on the work and life of Alphonse Mucha... So glad I was here in Paris during this special event. Audio guide was totally worth it, give yourself at least an hour and a half for the Mucha exhibit alone.
