The Musee de Jeu de Paume once carried the Impressionist collections but now carries special exhibits. Last time I was there (April 2003), I attended a Magritte modern art/surrealist exposition with a dear friend of mine.

While the exhibit itself was wonderful I found the building itself to be stuffy due to no A/C which shouldn't be a problem in April but it was unseasonably hot that spring. The interior is decorated with all white walls to underscore the importance of the artworks.

And the Magritte works were fantastic! Getting to see works I've only seen in books was a tremendous thrill - sharing them with an arty friend even more so! My last trip, February 2006, I only passed around it admiring the exterior.

Named after the Palm Courts (much like tennis courts) that were once all the rage in Paris.

Not covered by the Museum pass.
