Named after the hill it occupies, le Palais de Chaillot was built in 1937 for l'Exposition Universelle of the same year. The Art Déco structure replaced the 19th century Palais du Trocadéro, which had been built for the earlier Exposition Universelle of 1878. Palais de Chaillot occupies a strategic point in Paris opposite the Eiffel Tower. The two buildings that make up the Palais contain several museums, including musée du Cinéma, musée de l'Homme, and musée de la Marine. They also contain a theatre.
