My blog is a mix of all things travel and with that I have a certain appreciation for architecture. If you are following me on Instagram, you will notice how architecture, whether its that of our skyline in London or whether it’s that from my travels.
I have been wanting to visit Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris for a while now, but each time I have been in Paris it was too far out from where I was staying or other places took priority on my visit. Frank Gehry’s Fondation Louis Vuitton is simply a treat. You will of course know that this is one of my favourite architectures among the likes of the late Zaha Hadid, having also tracked down his beautiful foil buildings in Germany’s Dusseldorf.

Visiting Fondation Louis Vuitton Museum In Paris
During my visit last month I was determined to visit and explore the building and its contents. It was a lot easier this time as I was staying on Champs Élysées. It was on the same metro line and only a few stops to get to Jardin d’Acclimatation for Foundation Louis Vuitton. The building itself is beautiful, albeit super cold with all the many openings. They are currently featuring a lot of Chinese artists. With a few from Guangzhou, one of the Chinese cities I visited a while back. It’s great to see the freedom of expression some of them have displayed as there is a little bit of censorship in China and what some of the art is showcasing, most wouldn’t necessarily be able to showcase in China without it being a bit of a scandal of sorts. I took a few pictures of some of my favourite below but you will just have to go and see the rest for yourself.

Fondationation Louis Vuitton Tips
Book online if you can for immediate entry, otherwise the queue for tickets is about 10-15 minutes long most days. Make sure you take your time to walk around the whole building. There a plenty of beautiful parts not to miss out on; the cascading water fountain, the hall with mirrors, the strategic little gap with the Eiffel Tower view.
Inside Fondationation Louis Vuitton
The inside of Fondation Louis Vuitton is like a little maze. You also have terraces with beautiful views of Eiffel Tower. You have a gallery with exhibitions that rotate.

Isabel Robertson - Fondation Louis Vuitton Location
Incredible photos! I would love to go there! Do you know the Fondation Louis Vuitton hours its open for? Also do you know if the location of Fondation Louis Vuitton is easy to get to from Paris central?
Thank you! Yes the location of Fondation Louis Vuitton is easy to get to by metro. Its about a 20 minute from from the metro to fondation louis vuitton. The trains in Paris are also fairly easy to navigate.
beautiful, loving these photos!! I would love to take pictures of my own. Do you know if photography is allowed inside Foundationation Louis Vuitton? Also do you know the arrondissement for Fondation Louis Vuitton?
I believe photography is allowed as there were plenty of people taking pictures. It may not be allowed for some of the exhibitions. I am afraid I can’t remember the Fondationation Louis Vuitton arrondissement.
Fondation Louis Vuitton Restaurant
I am visiting Paris next month and this is on my list of places to visit in Place. Do you know if Fondation Louis Vuitton has a restaurant? We are traveling with an infant and I would just like to make sure there is somewhere we can see down and make some food.
Yes, there was a cafe when we visited. I am sure there are facilities for you to make some baby food or at least the staff from Fondation Louis Vuitton restaurant can help you.
