Anyone every been to Musee Albert Kahn in paris?

Has anyone ever visit the gardens in Musee Albert Kahn located in the metro Boulogne-Pont St. Cloud? Any feedback on the food served in La Palmarium located within the garden?

A friend of mine is interested in seeing this in December. Not necessarily for the gardens in December but for the collection of early color photos.

It's near the Pont de St-Cloud Metro stop in the southwest corner of Paris. Actually it's probably outside of Paris in a suburb since it's at the end of Metro line 10.

Does anyone have a recommendation of a place out that way to eat or anything else to see?

My recollection is that the Metro line stays within Paris. The museum is on the left bank of the Seine. There are cafés right at the Metro stop, about fifty yards from the museum entrance. We were there in August, during the heat wave, and the gardens were not overwhelming.

Thanks Michael.

It's nice to know there's a cafe or two in the immediate vicinity. I've not ever ventured this far into the 'burbs so I wanted to make sure there would be some place for lunch.

Since we aren't going for the gardens, it won't matter that they aren't spectacular. Thanks for the heads-up though. If we were going for the gardens I'd certainly move them down a notch or two on my "must see" list.

Wel, indy, there's the Pré-Catalan if you have a huge budget - worth every penny, though.

Hi StCirq.

I did a quick search and one of them mentioned a 7 course dinner at Pre-Catalan for 140 euro apiece. Ack! Don't think I'll be dining there.

You can get a great lunch menu at Pre Catalan plus a lunch special wine for much less. The meal is 3 courses. In my opinion, lunch is better, since you get to see the park outside. In really nice weather (not this time of year!), youget to eat outside.
