The Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris
The permanent collection is free for all

The Petit Palais: a magnificent building

  • Le petit Palais is the Museum of Fine Arts of the City of Paris which includes collections of paintings and sculptures from antiquity to the 1920s
  • This museum exhibits works by major artists such as Ingres, Géricault, Delacroix, Cézanne, Bonnard and Maillol? Nevertheless, in our opinion, the permanent collection will be of particular interest to art lovers
  • The building which dates back to the world exhibition of 1900 and its interior patio are really worth a visit. It has a crazy charm!
  • The Petit Palais regularly organizes temporary exhibitions. These are paying and are of high quality

The café-restaurant of the Petit Palais is a very pleasant place

  • The café restaurant of the Petit Palais, located in its inner courtyard is a very pleasant place for a lunch break or snack
  • It is a self-service café that serves very simple and very good dishes (pies, quiches, salads, cakes?)
  • It is a place that we especially recommended in good weather to enjoy the tables placed under the rotunda of the interior patio.
  • You can have lunch or a snack by a mosaic-lined pool, under romantic colonnades and amidst exotic vegetation?  It is a place that has a crazy charm!
  • The access to the café is free, you can go there without visiting the museum
