Arrrggghhh! Last July Peter and I pressed our faces through the elegant ironwork at the Musée de la Mode et du Costume-Palais Galiera, and took these photos, but that's as far as we got. Closed, fermé!! Located across the street from the Palais Tokyo, and other museums that overlook the Eiffel Tower, it's very convenient for you museum lovers.
Opened in 1888 to house the drawings of Paris by the Duchess of Galiera, Marie Brinol-Sale, this museum now houses over 100,000 exhibits representing French fashion from the 18th century to the present. Because of the fragile nature of the costumes, the exhibits change frequently, therefore there is no permanent collection , and the museum is not open on a regular basis. My next trip, I'll be knocking on the gate again you can be sure. A MUST SEE!
