- Do you ever walk around an art gallery and think, "this would be so much better if I was nude?"If the answer's yes, then the Palais de Tokyo in Paris has, in a manner of speaking, got you covered.This stylish contemporary art gallery allowed guests to strip off for a clothing-free event on May 5.Guests checked their clothing into the cloakroom, before wandering the halls of the Palais to admire the sculptures and striking paintings.To avoid any surprise encounters, the visit took place before the official opening of the museum. Clothed staff were on hand to offer insight into the artwork.The event marked the first time a Paris museum has welcomed nudists and follows last summer's successful establishment of a nude zone in the city's Bois de Vincennes park.Nude guests told local newspaper Le Parisien that they enjoyed the experience. "The atmosphere was very nice," said one, adding that there was initially some embarrassment, but that being nude allows you to experience the artwork differently.There are an estimated 2.6 million naturists in France and Paris has an active Nudists Association. Parisian naturists can bathe in the buff in the Roger Le Gall swimming pool and enjoy nude exercise classes and bowling games.Anyone interested in experiencing a slice of the French nudist life, can also check out the clothing-optional vacation rentals available on NaturistBnB.This new venture is an Airbnb style booking tool for vacationers who want to leave their clothes at home.
