Institut du Monde Arabe

1 Rue des Fossés Saint-Bernard, 75005 Paris

10am–6pm Tues–Fri, 10am–7pm Sat, Sun. The terrace is open during museum opening hours.

Built beside the Seine in 1987 to the award-winning designs of Jean Nouvel, the Institut du Monde Arabe is appreciated for its architecture as much as its content. Its 240 light-sensitive apertures control the amount of light entering the building and make arabesque patterns on the interior wall. In 2012 a new museum, with around 600 objects from 22 countries, was added to the centre, which also provides performance and conference spaces.
