Grand Palais
Paris, France

The Grand Palais is one of the most iconic Parisian monuments. Built for the 1900 Exposition Universelle, it is recognizable by its large glass dome flanked by the French flag. This architectural masterpiece of stone, steel and glass has been listed as a historical monument since 2000. It comprises 3 major sites: the Nave, the National Galleries and the Palais de la Découverte. The majestic nave, 240 m long, welcomes a wide variety of major national and international events: (horse riding, contemporary art, fairground, etc.). The national galleries organize large-scale exhibitions on artists that have marked the history of art (Picasso, Hopper, Renoir, etc.). The Palais de la Découverte is a museum and cultural centre dedicated to science, where children can learn whilst having fun, through permanent collections and temporary exhibitions. A 3-in-1 site that’s not to be missed, close to the Champs-Elysées.

Designed by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the Grand Palais Éphémère is a temporary building on the Champ-de-Mars. The Grand Palais Éphémère is an events venue intended to host the major events usually held in the Nave, such as the FIAC, Paris Photo, the Saut Hermès and the Chanel fashion shows, during the renovation of the Grand Palais. The Grand Palais Éphémère is also an Olympic site and will host the judo, wrestling, wheelchair rugby and para judo competitions.
