Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The Pinacothèque, which ranks among the city's most original art spaces, stages a steadily rotating calendar of crowd-pleasing shows by marquee names such as van Gogh, Vermeer, Goya, and Munch. The exhibitions are often eclectic, bringing together masters and lesser-known artists whose works share a link, such as Modigliani and the French artist Chaïm Soutine. Director Marc Restellini is used to stirring things up. When he opened the Pinacothèque, some wondered whether Paris needed another museum: the crowds massing out front answered those skeptics. Restellini followed up by opening Pinacothèque 2 at 8 rue Vignon, just steps away from the main venue behind the Église de la Madeleine. It hosts temporary exhibitions and has a small but notable permanent collection blending periods and styles (imagine a Botticelli paired with a Matisse). For popular shows, pay an extra €2 to buy your ticket online and cut the queue.
