How many museums are there in Paris?

We all know the Louvre, and like the city of Paris, we can never know all of its treasures … We know the Musée d’Orsay and the Impressionists there and probably at the Marmottan Monet, too.

You may know the Arts Décoratifs housed in the Louvre, too and Guimet for Asian Art with its vast collection of Buddhas at Iena. Close to there is The Musuem of Modern Art and the Palais de Tokyo.

On the Rive Gauche, rue de Grenelle, you’ll find the Musée Maillot. Its permanent exhibits of Maillol’s paintings and sculptures are always complemented by exceptional temporary exhibits.

Cross over the Seine and you’ve got Branly for ethnic art. Cross back to Trocadéro for the Musée de la Marine and its exhibit of boats of all ages … Don’t forget Galliera for clothes and fashion nor the Museum of Natural History and the Musée de l’Homme (et de la Femme) …

We can’t forget Picasso or the Centre Pomipou or La Villette for Science. And what about Rodin and Les Invalides nearby?

Tonight’s the night! Museums are open … they’re free … and the link is on

the Paris Savannah Connection.   Written with you in mind.
