The Impressionists at the Musée Marmottan-Monet
For lovers of paintings, and particularly paintings by the Impressionists, the Marmottan-Monet Museum is a must. Located within a former hunting lodge, it is the perfect setting for you to enjoy paintings by famous or less known impressionist painters including Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. An exciting temporary exhibition which will run until 18th January 2015 reveals the history behind the Claude Monet masterpiece ‘Impression, rising Sun’.
Fashion at the Palais Galliera
The most exclusive fashion museum in the city of Paris, the Palais Galleria brings the history of fashion to life in a series of prestigious exhibitions. Therefore, visitors can as easily be dazzled by exhibitions that feature the magnificent costumes of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as they are by shows highlighting some of the most spectacular contemporary creations. The museum also houses a breath-taking collection of accessories from the last three centuries, including beautifully made jewellery, fans, bags and umbrellas.
