Institut du monde arabe and Jeu de Paume - advance tickets needed?

I am traveling to Paris this week and wondering if I should buy tickets in advance for the Institut du monde arabe (museum and special exhibits) and Jeu de Paume. Does anyone know if either has long lines? I don't mind a 15 minute wait - longer than that is hard on the knees... Thanks in advance for your help!

No lines at the Institute unless there is a big special event. I don't know about the other but my guess is that wait times are not long there either.

I can also confirm that there are no lines at the Institut du Monde Arabe - I was there in late April and there was 1 person ahead of me in line. This is covered by the Paris Museum Pass, if you happen to get one while in Paris.

I have never had lines at either place and have visited the Institut du Monde Arabe once and the Jeu de Paume several times.
