Discover a range of exciting exhibitions at the original centre for Universal Exhibitions.
The Grand Palais was originally built to house the 1900 Universal Exhibition, displaying the best of France's artistic and technical achievements.
The building itself, with it's façade composed of over 200,000 tonnes of stone and the largest glass roof in Europe, certainly showcases the architectural prowess of the French Belle Époque. Having hosted numerous international exhibitions and even serving as a military hospital during the First World War, today the Palace welcomes temporary exhibitions from a range of artistic cultures and mediums.
