Dedicated to contemporary and modern art, Palais De Tokyo offers an unbroken rotation of exhibitions detailing fresh, new art from around the world. Once seen as the underdog of modern art in Paris, its exciting and adventurous vision has seen it become a leader of contemporary spaces in the City of Lights.

There was a swarm of activity at the time of my visit, with new exhibits being furiously set up behind curtains and artists on lifts adding final touches to the walls. The artwork was a brilliant range of installation and sculptural pieces and the gallery also hosts performances, concerts and other major art events all year round.

Cafe Le Smack is perfectly located inside the gallery so you can top up on caffeine before or after your visit.
