As with most of our other visits to Paris, we got a Museum Pass for our stay in Paris and the Institut du Monde Arabe (Institute of the Arab World) was one of the museums that we hadn't visited that was included on the pass. I think the museum was undergoing renovation and part of the collection was off display because there really wasn't much here, some decorative arts, some examples of calligraphy, some photography but the whole visit was less than a 1/2 hour. But if you have a Museum Pass, you might still want to visit for the view from the top floor's open air deck, you can get a nice view of Notre-Dame, Sacre Coeur and the Place de Bastille

Located at 1, rue des Fossés Saint-Bernard. Open Tues-Sun 10am-6pm . Closest metro: Jussieu, Cardinal Lemoine, Sully-Morland
