This architectural stunner was built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, and is home to the Paris municipality’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris. It specialises in medieval and Renaissance objets d’art, such as porcelain and clocks, tapestries, drawings, and 19th-century French painting and sculpture; and also has paintings by such artists as Rembrandt, Colbert, Cézanne, Monet, Gaugin and Delacroix.

The cafe here has lovely garden seating.
