Grand Palais, Paris: 28 reviews and 72 photos
Built in 1900 as an exhibition hall for the Universal Exhibition, le Grand Palais is an architectural masterpiece combining Neoclassical and Art Nouveau styles. It stands opposite its smaller sister palace, le Petit Palais, and both continue to serve as exhibition halls to the present day. After an extensive restoration project that lasted years, le Grand Palais finally reopened again in 2005. It is divided into three sections: two exhibition halls, and a permanent science and technology museum called Palais de la Découverte and is located in the rear of the building. Most of the high profile exhibitions that tour the world are hosted at le Grand Palais.
