  • Still advertising photos looked better than the exhibit. Music doesn’t match movement, and not a very impactful show. Would have rather skipped, would not recommend.  more »
  • A nice show with good music during the presentation. It’s ongoing so you’ll know when the hour has passed. Then visit the Studio, it has a nice 15min exposition called Everything.  more »
  • Where to begin with this place. This place is truly amazing! They put famous paintings to music and movement projected on the walls and floor in such a way that you feel that you are inside of them, feeling every brush stroke. Pictures and videos will never truly do it justice. It has to be seen in person to be properly experienced/enjoyed. If you are in Paris, this place is a must see!!!
  • Fantastic experience that putqqs you inside the art. Close to 200 projectors are computer coordinated to make the floors and walls and people part of the animated art. Purchase tickets in advance or run the risk of a long wait to get in. A half hour from central Paris but worth the trip.
