Have you heard about the open-air sculpture museum? Set in the Square Tino Rossi in the 5th arrondissement, this small museum provides us with a free cultural stroll by the Seine, in a gorgeous bucolic setting.

You feel like going out but you cannot decide if you shall go outside or visit a museum? Well, we have the perfect solution: come and discover the Musée de la Sculpture en plein air – or the Open-Air Sculpture Museum! Set in Paris 5th arrondissement, in the Square Tino Rossi, this Paris museum allows you to enjoy magnificent contemporary art pieces whilst enjoying the great weather.

The museum is set on the Quai Saint-Bernard, between the pont de Sully and the pont d’Austerlitz bridges. Have a walk by the Seine, in a well-preserved flowered garden to discover over thirty sculptures made by renown artists. Zadkine, Brancusi, Gilioli, Poncet, Pagès, Debré, Schöffer, Baldaccini… This museum gathers a few masterpieces likely to draw your attention.

This little haven of peace in the Latin Quarter allows us to have a walk, enjoy masterpieces, walk around them, have a seat on a bench to enjoy the quiet, dance, have a drink and even work out! As a matter of fact, several entertainments and publics come to this two-hectare garden-museum symbolizing the Parisian lifestyle.

This open-air museum is little-known by Parisians and set between the Jardin des Plantes and the Arab World Institute. It also provides an original stroll environment to people willing to avoid crowds in Paris’ more iconic gardens.

Open daily, 24/7, the Sculpture Museum is also a place of meeting for partygoers who like to have fun aboard the River’s King barge, that houses the 3615 bar. In this atypical bar, art sometimes comes in unexpected ways!
