Palais de TokyoThe Palais de Tokyo is the first art institution in the world to remain open from noon to midnight, everyday except Monday. You can drop by after seeing a movie or dining out! The most avant-garde art museum in Western Europe, it makes a point of showing cutting - in fact, downright bleeding - edge conceptual and video art, not to mention performance art.There's also a regular program of the latest music, dance and politically driven art work. Yep, it's a French radical's (or poseur's) paradise - fun, though!

Palais de Tokyo restaurantThe Palais de Tokyo may be a venue for emerging art, but gastronomic needs and capitalism have not been forgotten: a restaurant, a cafeteria, a bookshop and a boutique cater to visitors.

Tip: If you're into contemporary art in Paris, check out these sites, especially Paris Art which provides an English version of its vast coverage of the Paris art scene: and
