In Paris, temporary exhibitions that take place in July and August offer essential moments of discovery and cultural enrichment. The offering is varied with: contemporary design, more classic works and unusual installations and performances.
Exhibitions are an integral part of cultural life in Paris. Whether they be held at major museums, such as the Pompidou Centre, the Petit Palais and the Musée National Picasso or more unusual places such as the roof of the Grande Arche, the Grande Halle de La Villette, the Grand Gallery of Evolution at the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle or the Atelier des Lumières, exhibitions are always something to look forward to! The free exhibitions, outdoors at La Villette, on the railings of the Luxembourg Gardens or those of the City Hall, are also part of cultural life in the capital in summertime.
