Even if you live in the city or are just on holiday in Paris, you will find that the exhibitions are always changing approximately every two months, although there is always one particular exhibition project that runs for several months.
From mid July 2013 through to mid August 2014 the main exhibition is called Raw Vision that celebrates 25 years of the magazine dedicated to all forms of outsider artistic creation. And with over 80 different artists creations displayed it will cover international trends and unusual classics through to the unexpected, that is designed to bring what is known as Outsider Art, more into the public eye.
However, the Halle Saint Pierre also has an auditorium and conducts numerous different lectures, conferences, discussions, poetry readings, concerts and performances, and although some of these are free, others are charged for, but it is always recommended to make a reservation by telephone on

Access to the Halle Saint Pierre Museum in Paris
The Halle Saint Pierre is located in the 18th Arrondissement in the Montmartre area of Paris close to the Square Louise Michel and the Funicular, which is the cable car that allows you to avoid numerous steps up towards the Sacre Coeur Basilica.
This contemporary museum is open from 10am on a Monday to Friday through to 6pm, yet on a Saturday is opens from 10am to 7pm and on a Sunday it is open from 11am through to 6pm.
However, we would like to point out that the Halle Saint Pierre closes on national French holidays such as 1st May and 15th August, plus the last time for entry is 45 minutes before closing time.
The cost of admission is €8 as of 2013 and there is disabled access with a lift along with dedicated toilets for those with mobility problems or wheelchair users, plus there is a participation fee for certain events held within the auditorium such as concerts, which are a cost of €10.
But we would also like to point out that pushchairs are not allowed in the exhibition areas, and the auditorium sessions are not designed with young children in mind, plus any bulky items such as coats, umbrellas, rucksacks and reasonably large bags, must be placed into one of the free lockers before visiting the exhibitions or the auditorium.
There is also a cafeteria for hot and cold beverages that is open during the weekdays in August, yet is closed at weekends, and getting to this unusual museum in Paris is pretty straightforward via the Metro stops of Anvers or Abesses.
