The Grand Palais is a large historic site, exhibition hall and museum complex located at the Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France.
Construction of the Grand Palais began in 1897 following the demolition of the Palais de l'Industrie (Palace of Industry) as part of the preparation works for the Universal Exposition of 1900.
A monumental bronze quadriga tops each wing of the main façade. The one on the Champs-Élysées side depicts "Immortality prevailing over Time", the one on the Seine side "Harmony triumphing over Discord". The building's west wing contains a science museum, the Palais de la Découverte. The Galeries nationales du Grand Palais features the picture exhibition "Salons". Also, it houses the great artistic events of the city of Paris.
In winter, the Grand Palais hosts an ice-skating rink with light shows.
Address: 3 avenue du Général Eisenhower, Paris

Exhibition Lumière at Grand Palais, Paris.

We intended to visit the JP Gaultier restrospective, but a 3 hour wait was a bit too long... we went to the Lumière exhibition instead. Perhaps a bit too expensive as the exhibition wasn't that big... read full review

    Patinoire originale dans un joli cadre mais un peu overpriced! Beaucoup de monde !

    Un lieu incroyable qui abrite des expositions incontournables. La verrière est bluffante !

    Très beau bâtiment et expos toujours très intéressantes. A deux pas des Champs Elysées et du Jardin des Tuileries. Carte Sésame super intéressante (illimité) pour les moins de 30 ans. Renseignez-vous!

    Билеты на выставки лучше покупать онлайн, как и в других музеях, так не придется в длинной очереди стоять.

    It's time for the Biennale des Antiquaires, a must-see attraction in Paris!
