This giant stone building with a splendid steel-framed glass roof was built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition. Dedicated ‘by the Republic to the glory of French art’, it was classed as a historical monument in 2000. An architectural innovation in its time, the Grand Palais hosts four major temporary exhibitions each year organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux and the Association Française d'Action Artistique (AFAA). More than 40 highly eclectic events are held each year, drawing two million visitors annually.
