Covid-19 information : a health pass or a test taken within the last 48 hours is required at the entrance.

In 1996 the European House of Photography took up residence in the magnificent private mansion the Hôtel Hénault de Cantobre, which dates from the early 18th century. Located just around the corner from the Ile Saint-Louis, the museum offers some twenty monographic shows and retrospectives per year, and showcases the most influential French and foreign artists, ranging from Larry Clark, Raymond Depardon, Martin Parr, Helmut Newton to William Klein.

To complete your visit, head to the library, with its collection of 30,000 exceptional reference works. In addition, the equally impressive video library boasts a selection of 750 films dedicated to photography, to be viewed upon request.

Please note that the museum doesn’t have a permanent collection on display, so check the programme before your visit.
