Description
The Palais de la Porte Dorée (in the 12th arrondissement) is a classed historical monument, built for the Colonial Exposition of 1931. A symbol of the art deco style, it has housed a tropical aquarium since its creation and, since 2007, the Cité Nationale de l'Histoire de l'Immigration, which takes a fresh look at the history of France by showing the part that was played by immigrants in economical development, social evolution, and the cultural activities of the country.
The permanent exhibition, Repères, is available as an open visit with a free audio guide provided that allows you to follow an itinerary that brings together personal accounts of migrants, report extracts, and old and new works of art.
