Maison Européenne de la Photographie

If you love photography, you’ll probably fall in love with the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, or MEP. Opened in 1996 in the city’s historic center, the building houses an impressive collection of contemporary photography. Apart from the 20,000 works of art, here you can also see rotating exhibitions that focus on photography from the late 20th and 21st century, as well as 24.000 books in the museum’s library, including rare editions. The center is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays but stays open on Thursdays until 10pm.
