Grand Palais

Author: Elisa Dudnikova Paris, France


Grand Palais, or Grand Palace, is a large cultural centre and exhibition hall built for the World's Fair in 1900. Its impressive "laced" roof weighs more than the Eiffel Tower, and the number of people lining for its exhibitions can be compared to the amount of those willing to enjoy the view from the Dame de Fer. The difference is in the audience itself. Grand Palais displays are definitely worth a couple hours of waiting, and you can halve this time by buying an e-ticket in advance. Be prepared that the quick look inside will require a minimum of a coule hours more, but you will remember it for the rest of your life. The exhibitions are unique and completely different: Mapplethorpe and Depardon, Dior and Cartier, Monet (the record-setter, viewed by half a million people) and Hopper. From time to time they organize nocturnes, hold an annual photographers gathering Paris Photo and the Paris modern art fair FIAC.
