In Paris, temporary exhibitions at museums and monuments 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 Musée d'Orsay, the Grand Palais, the Musée National Picasso, the Musée Jacquemart-André, the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain or more unusual places such as the Palais de la Porte Dorée 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.

Around Beaubourg and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and also over towards Belleville, Parisian art galleries also show exhibitions that are popular with fans of contemporary, classic, primitive and exotic art, and painting, photography, sculpture, etc.

Here, you’ll find all the latest must-see exhibitions in Paris.
