City of lights, city of love, city of philosophy, city of art; Paris is all these things. But it is also the city of museums, so much so that after years of exploring Paris, I still haven’t experienced them all.

Everybody’s heard of the Louvre or the Musée d’Orsay and with good reason: if you only have a few days in Paris, a visit to these two major museums will give you an overview of the city’s artistic blockbusters. However, if by chance you find yourself with a little time on your hands, this blog will help you scout out the lesser-known museums Paris has to offer. Each spot has its own charm, whether it be a focus on a particular person or movement, an incredible private collection or a gorgeous setting, such as a nineteenth-century residence in all its Belle Epoque splendour. The city of museums indeed.

  1. C’est super! This makes me really happy. Glad to see you made it to Paris, and are enjoying yourself thoroughly. Let me know if you want me to put you in touch with a couple of cousins around town. I think my Architect cous is somewhere in the 11e. Much love!

  4. What a bohemian life to write on movies for work and goes to museums for fun, darting between Paris and Melbourne. What you do in real life I do in virtual reality. 🙂 Thanks for following Ripple Effects.
