Petit Palais, Paris: 29 reviews and 75 photos
The Petit Palais is also built for the Exhibition Universelle in 1900 at the same time as the Grand Palais at the opposite of the street. The palace is constructed around a semi-circular courtyard and garden. The building with ionic columns, a grand porch and a dome is designed in the same style as the Grand Palais.
The Petit Palais houses nowadays the Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris or the municipal museum of fine arts. The museum is divided into several sections including the Dutuit Collection (medieval and renaissance paintings and drawings), the Tuck Collection (18th century furniture) and the collection fo the city of Paris with works by french artists like the school of Barbizon and impressionists.
To visit all the interesting museums in Paris will take a life-time. This one is after its restoration still at my list.
