Fodor's Review

Superseded by the Bibliothèque Nationale François-Mitterand, France's longtime national library now hosts well-done temporary exhibits, often featuring photography from its vast collection of legends such as Cartier-Bresson and Man Ray. The library remains open (though some portions are off-limits) during a multiyear renovation that's set to end in 2019.
