Fodor's Expert Review La Gaîté Lyrique

The Marais Arts Center

One of Paris's younger (it opened in 2011) contemporary-art venues combines innovative exhibits with live musical performances and a multimedia space that features a library, movies, and free video games. Think of it as a smaller, more interactive Centre Pompidou. La Gaîté Lyrique occupies three floors of a 19th-century theater—remnants of which are visible in the café upstairs.
