About Grand Palais
Grand Palais is a historic monument of the 19th century, in the region of Champs-Élysées, near Paris in France. A significant Parisian landmark and popular tourist attraction, the Grand Palais built in 1897 is over 100 years old, and was open to the public as a part of the Universal Exposition in 1900. Officially listed in 2000 as “monument historique”, by the French Ministry of Affairs, Grand Palais attracts 2.5 million visitors every year, and the monument houses an exhibition center and museum, for contemporary French art and culture.
Designed jointly by four renowned architects, Henri Deglane, Albert Thomas, Charles Girault, and Albert Louvet, the Grand Palais is an architectural masterpiece of Neo-Classicism and Art Nouveau styles of the 19th century. The breath-taking streetscape views of the building facade, with the magnificent stone colonnades, and eye-catching translucent glass vault roof, built with iron and steel framework, is a visual delight to the visitors. With symmetrical proportions and massive in scale, the façade lobby has a grand staircase, flanked by large columns on the exteriors, and has intricate mosaic and metalwork on the interiors.
The building covers three major zones, namely the Galeries Nationales (art and cultural museum), the Palais de la Découverte (science museum), and the Nave (atrium with glass roof).
Visitors can discover French art and cultural exhibits of sculptures and contemporary artwork, at the Galeries Nationales by eminent artists such as Monet, Chardin, and more. For science enthusiasts, the Palais de la Découverte holds science experiments and educational workshops, for visitors in an interactive way. Likewise, the Nave, towering at 150 feet is the largest glass roof structure in Europe, and hosts a variety of prestigious social and cultural events, all-round the year. Information on the exhibitions, events and collections are available on the website.
