Paris’s museums, monuments, theatres, concert halls and organizers of trade fairs and trade shows have adapted amazingly well to the situation and are proposing virtual visits and online events. Check out what’s on in Paris from the comfort of your own home on the screen of your laptop, tablet or smartphone.
Museums, including the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Pompidou Centre, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Musée des Arts et Métiers and many more, are now making their programmes available on their websites, on dedicated platforms and /or on social media (Facebook, Instagram, YouTube etc.). Some are even offering access to past exhibitions, so if you missed one this is a great chance to catch up.
A number of cultural institutions – Grand Palais, Atelier des Lumières, Musée en Herbe, Cluny Museum-The Medieval World, Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace, Institut Giacometti, Natural History Museum among others – can also be visited online. Some of their events are specifically designed for families and children.
Virtual visits allow you to discover the finest details of some of Paris’s iconic monuments and castles including the roofs of the Palais Garnier opera house, the Hall of Mirrors at the Château de Versailles, and the magnificent function rooms of Paris’s Hôtel de Ville – its virtual exhibitions are free of charge. Admire the construction of the Eiffel Tower or the Art Deco architecture of the Palais de la Porte Dorée.

Trade fairs and trade shows are some of the other must-see events in Paris’s diary that can be experienced in digital format.
