Palais de Tokyo

Often referred to as the “anti-museum”, the Palais de Tokyo in Paris’s 16th arrondissement Paris near to the Tracadero, was founded in 2002. The museum presents an ever-changing programme of temporary exhibitions featuring some of the most dynamic contemporary artists working today. 

This museum, just a short walk from La Réserve Apartments Paris, has aimed to showcase established and emerging artists alike, making use of its cavernous halls to present daring installations that are designed to both engage and entertain. 

The west wing of the palace houses one of the largest centres for creation and contemporary art in Europe. Entirely renovated in April 2012 by the architects Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vasall, the site offers visitors exhibitions, meetings, screenings, concerts and performances in a 22,000 m² space spread across 4 floors. 

On the east wing of the Palais de Tokyo, you will find the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. It is one of the greatest modern and contemporary art-museum of France! The permanent collections of the museum will introduce you to all the best artistic movements. You will have the opportunity to discover and learn more about many artists from the twentieth century to our current artistic and cultural scene, such as Picasso, Dufy, Modigliani, Derain, Picabia, Chagall, Boltanski, Parreno and Peter Doig. 

The Little Palais offers special activities and workshops for children. Numerous amenities: two restaurants, including the Tokyo Eat, two gardens and a bookshop. The east wing of the Palais de Tokyo houses the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris

Reside in the Trocadero district of Paris and book a luxury designer apartment at La Réserve Apartments Paris. Many rooms include views of the Eiffel Tower, this all suite-apartment hotel is a noble affair hidden behind the doors of discretion itself in trendy Trocadéro. A truly Parisian residency, these luxury apartments offer a fashionable abode of designer prose, where classicism has been tamed by contemporary coolness thanks to Putman, Maxalto and Vitra.
