  • The building impresses for your beautiful architecture, especially for your iron and glass dome, which can be seen from various points of the French capital. Enter is difficult-it is necessary to "get lucky" of the event you're interested and the price is reasonable.

  • If in front of the Petit Palais we found ourselves at a very nice Palace to see but little one here, however, we are faced with an enormous construction, in my view, the best thing is definitely the stained-glass window in the roof, if not the largest c He saw little we miss. Usually there are temporary exhibitions, but you can also find the works of Gaugin. ... Although I preferred to Rodin.

  • Constructed at the end of 19th Century for the Universal Exhibition in 1900, this is an equally impressive building to gaze from both within and without! The photo I attach is from the inside upstairs...  more »

  • Was there for the Irving Penn exhibit. Being disabled and using a motorized chair I was greeted by a guide who took me through the basements and back corridors and service lifts up to the exhibition. When I wanted to move to a different level the guard radioed the guide who quickly came to escort me on the service lift. Like other main museums in Paris entrance was free for me and a companion.
  • I come to the Grand Palais often for Chanel fashion shows and is truly spectacular. It's so amazing how they can transform an empty space into anything that Karl can imagine! Always leaving us breathless. Even without the transformation, the Grand Palais itself lives up to its name.
  • The architectural work of this place is really something to marvel at... I took so many beautiful photos here! Its importance in Paris is also really interesting and I really enjoyed checking this place out.
  • Kupka exposition was amazing. Just one complain: closing the merch shop before the exposition doesn't make any sense. I guess they don't want to sell stuff.
  • The Grand Palais is one of these most beautiful monument in Paris. If you have the chance be in Paris on December you go to the Grand Palais’s fairground.
