Exhibitions in Paris

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 free exhibitions too: the railings of the Luxembourg Gardens, 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, Parisian art galleries also present exhibitions that are popular with fans of contemporary, classic, primitive and exotic art, with paintings, photography, sculpture
Here is a glimpse of the most eagerly-awaited exhibitions in Paris for 2015.
