"Palais de Chaillot ? Number of museums." Palais de Chaillot Tip by Jerelis
Palais de Chaillot, Paris: 36 reviews and 81 photos
Today, the Palais de Chaillot houses a number of different museums. In the south wing, there are two - the Musée de la Marine (Naval Museum) and the Musée de l'Homme (The Museum of Man). The former is a maritime-themed museum whose collection started with artifacts that belonged to Louis XV. There's also an architecture museum - the Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine, which opened in 2007. The museum showcases French architecture from the Middle Ages through the 21st century. The Théâtre National de Chaillot is located below the esplanade. With 1,200 seats, it was the center of Parisian culture following World War II and is still a popular location for concerts and plays.
Walking on the main square at the hill in between the two amazing wings we also learned that this building is as a reminder of the French victory in Spain in 1823. So, more than enough history lessons I guess. We walked around, enjoyed the views and also had a nice cool drink at the nearby Café Kleber.
Address: Place du Trocadero, 75116 Paris.
