...or - to be precise - The Modern Art Museum of the city of Paris, because - yes - Paris also has the national modern art museum at the Pompidou Centre, and of course the experimental bleeding edge of modern art just next door at the Palais de Tokyo. So, one modern art museum too many? Opinions differ, but if you fancy seeing a giant Dufy or a rare Matisse, this is where you should go.
In yet another building dating from a Universal Exposition (this time in 1937), the permanent collection is split into two chronologies from before and after the sixties, and a renovation finished in 2005 has created a “dark room” especially for showing modern video works. Temporary exhibitions include a wide range of artists from Warhol and Matthew Barney, and - let's be honest - the bookshop is a fabulous place to find tomes to wow your future dinner guests.
