On June 9, 10, 16 and 17, 2018, the Grand Palais offers an exceptional visit of the Nave entitled “La Nef est à vous” [The Nave if Yours]. This is the occasion to admire the masterpiece of French architecture designed by Henri Deglane.

Roaming across a 13.500-sqm surface… This is what the Grand Palais proposes by exceptionally opening its Nave to the public, on June 9, 10, 16 and 17, 2018. On the occasion, the Nave will be empty. A free visit in one of the most impressive venues in the capital and currently the biggest glass roof in Europe. Entitled “La Nef est à Vous“ – or The Nave is Yours – this exceptional opening to the public enables everyone to know more about this historical monument listed since 1975, about its architecture and its designer, Henri Deglane.

For these two weekends, passersby and architecture enthusiasts have two choices: a guided tour (4 tours between 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.) lasting 45 minutes and held by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux – Grand Palais lecturers, or an “unguidedtour for 1h10 (4 tours between 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.), carried on by the concept inventor Bertrand Bossard and actor Solal Bouloudnine. The idea of the second option? Making you discover a place full of history through uncommon visits and “via a unique creation”.

An exceptional visit that you really have to book for group tours (25 persons for guided tours, 40 persons for the “unguided” tours) in the afternoons. A way to discover one of the most emblematic buildings in Paris and its history.
