What people say

"A. MUST. SEE. Sorry for the caps lock situation, but you simply cannot miss out on this Atelier. To a large, mainly female population, this location become known thanks to the Emily in Paris show we all love to hate. And if you can put that bit of info to the side, this place will blow your mind. I was lucky enough to experience the Cezanne exhibition on my last trip to Paris and it was so peaceful, so captivating and beautiful that I still don't know which words to use. The entry fee is around 16 euros, and it is nothing compared with what you will experience inside. Plus, there is a photo-booth (free of charge) and a gift-shop with some of the best postcards I ran across in Paris. "
"The Atelier des Lumières is a digital art center. It offers so-called “immersive” exhibitions: the visitor is invited to stroll through the space where he can discover thousands of digitized images of works of art to the sound of a musical composition. This gives the impression of being immersed in the paintings. Address: 38 Rue Saint-Maur, 75011 Paris, France Opening hours/Ticket price: These vary depending on the current exhibition. Please check the official website. Getting there: LINE 3 Métro station Rue Saint-Maur LINE 9 Métro station Saint-Ambroise "
"+This is my favourite. A peaceful place, a place to chill and listen to music and watch the illustrations. +People sit there and lay on the floor. + it’s a quiet place, you are with your thoughts and emotions. If you had a bad day just go there to chill down. +The tickets are about 15€ not that much, believe me it’s worth it. "
