"Bibliothèque Nationale de France" Bibliothèque Nationale Mitterand Tip by Imbi


Composed of two tall glass towers, the vast building that houses the French National Library ressembles an office block from afar. Instead of bankers however, the visitors who enter this edifice are researchers, students and general readers. Every book, periodical and audio-visual material ever published in France is accessible to researchers here, and a section of the library is open to the public.

Admission: adults 20F (EUR 3.05), exhibitions 45F (EUR 6.86).

11, quai François Mauriac
