At the top of the museum the Café Campana delights visitors with the originality of its metal structure and its imposing clock overlooking the Seine. It is the perfect place for an aperitif or cocktail buffet. A magnificent setting in the heart of Paris! From its terrace, in summer, and, weather permitting, your guests can enjoy a wonderful view across the Right Bank to the Louvre, the Opera and Sacré Coeur.
