Architect Frank Gerhy is a genius”, said the French minister of culture Fleur Pellerin. After the grand reopening of the Picasso museum, another high profile museum just opened this October (October 27, 2014) to help Paris enter modernity.

The Louis Vuitton Foundation museum, financed by Louis Vuitton’s owner, Bernard Arnaud, CEO of LVMH and designed by Frank Gerhy, is the new Paris contemporary art gem. And 200.000 visitors have come here the first two months! With the Centre Pompidou, built in 1977, Paris now has two museums that are sculptures themselves.

What to say about this building? Is this a glass spaceship lost in the Bois de Boulogne, the big city park at the West gate of Paris? Is it a cloud flying in the trees? In anyway, Parisians are proud of this creation. Inside, various exhibitions will be displayed and the first one is proudly dedicated to its architect. From there, a magnificient view on Paris.

From now on, your stroll in the Bois de Boulogne will have a brand new meaning. A can’t-miss art revolution. Check out the official website to book your tickets in advance. Check out the temporary exhibitions right here.
