The Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées, commonly known as the Grand Palais (English: Great Palace), 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, which also included the creation of the adjacent Petit Palais and Pont Alexandre III. It has been listed since 2000 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
Terrific museum. Exhibits are excellent, great presentation. Restrooms are spotless & cafeteria is excellent. Just the building itself is amazing, go & enjoy.
We went here in 2012 the building was spectacular impressive and they happen to be doing some kind of art show called soup or no soup it was raining beautiful place to go into great place to get out of the rain impressive building
Shows some extraordinarily good exhibitions. We always buy tickets ahead on line. If it's busy, you queue outside, so be prepared for the weather. Has a functional, convenient cafe inside, serving tasty salads, baguettes, drinks and cake. The shop's also good and you can get a discount with your exhibition ticket. All makes for a great day out!
Wonderful museum/ exhibition space. Look up what's going on here because just the building itself is worth your time.
Decently sized museum. I liked the exhibit that was there at the time: Artistes et Robots (Artists and Robots). Get an audio guide or use the Google translate mobile app to translate using the phone's camera, as the texts about the works are all in French.
Visited the artists and robots exhibition. Sounded great. But most of the exhibits weren't working. Others were very basic. With everything working it would still not be worth it but with all the best bits motionless it would be expensive if it was free.
We visited only Artists and Robot exposition, it was very enjoying and informative. I like the interactive expositions the most. Buy tickets online to avoid queues.
Impressive building. Expositions inside are often worth it (been to KUPKA, was really great!) even if quite pricey. Don't get lost around the Palais, the surroundings are currently under construction.
Magnificient piece of architecture. Unfortunately the main area under the glass roof isn't available open to the public but you can view one of the temporary exhibitions located in a corner of the building. At the time it was artists and robots which was a brilliant exhibition.
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...!!!
Incredible place. I don’t live in Paris but every time I pass by, I always use my free hours to visit the exhibition of the moment. Always something incredible too see, lean, experiment. My favorites exhibitions ever : Hokusai and Monet. 14€ the adult ticket. You may experiment 2/3 hours waiting in the queue, if you come at the peak hours ; reserve your spot online to avoid that.
Went for Irving Penn exhibit, truly amazing, got lost in it for hours. I recommand this place they managed the flood of people very well, u dont feel its crowded if tough it was.
Gaugin was a major disappointment. Lines were badly managed, museum was dingy and most of the artwork was pretty naff. Petit Palais had better stuff and is nicer all round including architecture
Free admission. Lovely place to visit. U will learn a lot.
We came to paris for a few days and really wanted to see the Rodin exhibit!! it was amazing, the venue and the exhibition! highly recommend it!
It's almost guaranteed that the exhibitions displayed at the Grand Palais will blow you away. It appears that they somehow always have the very best of the artist they're presenting or the theme they're focusing on.
