Museum Cafés not to be missed in Paris

After spending hours contemplating paintings, sculptures or photos in a museum, you often want to sit in the café of the establishment to discuss the exhibition you have just seen, have a drink and, why not, enjoy a good plate.

However, the culinary offer of museum cafés is sometimes disappointing or at least not always in line with the reputation of the cultural institutions where they are located. How many times have we had to choose between a club sandwich in a box or a muffin, which are very expensive?

In Paris, many museum cafés have changed the situation, offering gastronomic experiences as well as the exhibitions organized in the museums that host them. Feed your minds and stomachs at the museum, by discovering this selection of spots not to be missed.
