Critics often say Paris is stuck in the past but there's plenty happening in the coming months and years, from new museums opening or re-opening to plans to have cable cars crossing the Seine or new vertigo inducing glass floors in the Eiffel Tower. Here's what to expect.

An exciting new project was unveiled for Paris this week, that involves plans to convert the famous Avenue Foch in the 16th Arrondissement into a huge park and pedestrian zone

Whether it gets the go ahead or not we'll have to wait and see but other cultural projects in the City of Light are well under way and many are set to open in 2014.

Critics often say "Paris is stuck in the past", "Paris never changes" etc, but there's a lot happening in the coming months and years with the city set to welcome some new spots on its already jam-packed cultural scene and also welcome back some old ones, that we may have forgotten about.

So there's good news for anyone who is fed up with the Louvre and the Quai d'Orsay. Here's a look ahead to some of the new projects for Paris, some that could change the face of the city and others that may sound like pie in the sky ideas, that might just get off the ground, literally.

From cable cars across the Seine to skyscrapers, museums and shopping centres, here's a look at what's new for Paris in 2014 and beyond.
