What people are saying:

This is a beautiful art gallery, once a tennis court building turned into an art collection, in Paris in such a flowing feast, not so prominent, has been often ignored by tourists.

Additional Information

Introduction

Napoleon III commissioned the construction of this building in 1861 to house the courts for "jeu de paume" also known as the grandparent of tennis. Now home to the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume, a contemporary visual arts gallery, the Jeu de Paume previously hosted Impressionistic and Post-Impressionistic art. The Galerie shows primarily photography, but also features video, cinema and Internet-based works. They show both established figures as well as emerging artists. On the last Tuesday of the month, evening admission is free to those 26 and under. Families are made especially welcome on Sunday afternoons, to facilitate adults and children enjoying the exhibits together.
