Fondation Louis Vuitton

8 Avenue du Mahatma Gandhi | 75016

The opening hours vary throughout the year but it is generally open daily from 10/11am to 8/9pm with longer hours on Thursday and weekends

The Fondation Louis Vuitton, tucked in the middle of the lush Bois de Boulogne is a must-see in Paris for its architecture, signed by Frank Gehry, and the quality of its exhibitions. Apart from very well curated art exhibitions, the Fondation also dedicates itself to dance and music. It is is a new landmark in Paris that must be visited even if it takes a bit of time to get there by public transport. There are shuttles from near the Arc de Triomphe, in Place Charles de Gaulle just in case (and Vélib dock right in front of the entrance if you want to cycle). However, before you head there have a look at the website to check the opening times and, in case of very popular exhibitions, buy your ticket online ahead of the queue. I recommend the views from the upper floors, where you can see the canopy of the trees in the Bois de Boulogne and the glass towers of the high-rise financial hub at La Défense. It is a new version of Paris.
