The largest centre in Europe dedicated to contemporary art exhibitions. The building itself used to serve as museum of modern art since its opening in 1937, but back then it was called Palace of the Museums of Modern Art.
Still serving a similar purpose to this day (although under a different name), this establishment is unlike any other. Having no permanent exhibitions, it cannot be qualified as a museum anymore, and you would be very disappointed if you started searching for conventional art pieces. It's difficult to describe what you're going to find here, because the place is very dynamic and always offers something new.
Palace of Tokyo is surely not for everyone. Only the people who can appreciate alternative forms of art and deeper meaning behind them are going to enjoy their time here, because those are the people the palace targets toward.
Apart from contemporary art, there is also a bookshop and a restaurant on site.
The queues to get tickets are usually very long, so buy them online if you want to avoid that. The palace is between two metro stations, Iéna and Alma - Marceau (line 9). You can also get here by buses: station Musée d'Art Moderne - Palais de Tokyo (line 72), and station Iéna (line 63).
Daily (except Tue): noon - midnight
