Exhibitions

Visiting exhibitions hosted by the major Paris museums are an unmissable opportunity for discovery and cultural enlightenment, a fleeting chance to admire rare and outstanding works in a matchless setting. Your trip to Paris would be worthwhile for these alone.

The city puts on open-air exhibitions too: the Champs-Elysées, the banks of the Seine or the Champ de Mars are sometimes the backdrop for pieces of sculpture or unusual objects. Around Beaubourg and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, you can appreciate the wealth of Parisian art galleries, whether your interest turns to contemporary, classical, primitive or exotic, paintings, photography or sculpture.
