They are open Tuesday - Sunday 10:00 - 18:00, with Wednesday open until 22:00. There is a well-stocked bookshop with a range of books, cards, calendars and other gifts, and a very good, small cafe where I had one of the best brownies I've ever had in Paris.
The museum opened in 1961 in the east wing of the Palais de Tokyo which was built in 1937 for the World's Fair.
On the left is Dufy's La fee electricite. This mural was done for the 1937 World's Fair and was placed in the trophy room in 1964. The painting is huge and tells the history of electricity from ancient to modern times, the section shown here is from the right-hand part of the painting.
