Musée national de l’histoire de l’immigration

The Palais de la Porte Dorée is an exceptional Art Deco building, listed as a historical monument. Situated on the edge of the Bois de Vincennes, it was built for the 1931 international colonial exhibition. Since 2007, it has housed the Musée de l’histoire de l’immigration, which takes a new look at the history of France by showing the role played by immigrants in the country's economic development, social developments and cultural life. The permanent exhibition Repères displays testimonies of migrants, extracts from reports, and old and contemporary works of art. Finally, the ‘donation gallery’ focuses on portraits of migrants and their lives, through objects donated by visitors wishing to share their life experiences with the museum
