Musée d'art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

The Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris is located in the heart of Paris, right between the Champs-Elysées and the Eiffel Tower. While its roots stretch back to 1937, the museum remains one of the key institutions of Parisian cultural life despite the transformations in name and location it has undergone over the decades. Its permanent collection contains all of the major artistic trends and artists representing these trends from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day, including Picasso and Matisse.

Beyond hosting renowned exhibitions, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris offers a plethora of educational programming options for schools and day-care centers to engage learners of all ages. The museum also operates community outreach programs intentionally designed to engage audiences that have traditionally lacked access to the modern and contemporary visual arts. Through its thoughtfully curated exhibitions and carefully designed programs, the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris seeks to encompass the diverse and magnetic dynamism of the visual arts in the 20th and 21st centuries.
