15 must-see exhibitions in Paris and Île-de-France right now

Published by La Rédac · Photos by Laurent de Sortiraparis · Published on March 28th, 2024 at 11:10 a.m.
Every month, the museums and galleries of Paris and the Île-de-France region offer an ever-increasing number of exhibitions. To help you choose your next outing among this host of proposals, we've selected for you the 15 must-see exhibitions to see right now or in the next few days.

Paris boasts dozens of museums, hundreds of galleries, and countless works of art to be seen around every corner... Each venue has its own program, and invites us to discover its exhibitions, which change very often. In short, it's easy to get lost in this mass of news. So what to see, where to go, what to do?

To our great regret, time is not infinite and certain daily obligations keep us away from museums. So when we can finally take the time to visit a beautiful exhibition, we want to be sure that it's going to be fantastic! Alas, it's not easy to choose between all these options. And that's where Sortiraparis comes in.

For you, we've scoured all the museum programs in and around Paris, to pick out only the best of the best, the crème de la crème of the exhibitions to see this month. Of course, many other exhibitions deserve to be included in this guide, but this selection already gives you an idea of what you can 't miss over the next few days.

Have you already seen everything, or are you just not enthusiastic about what's on offer? Come back often to consult this guide: this page is updated regularly as we make new discoveries. So if you're always on the lookout for great exhibitions in the Paris region, we suggest you bookmark this guide for even more great ideas for your next outing!

Are you ready? Hang on, we're off to the must-see exhibitions in and around Paris!
