Artists’ favorite playground and must-see for tourists, the Champs-Elysées are inseparable from Paris. From February 14 to May 10, 2020, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal devotes a free exhibition to them. The occasion to return on the story but also (and mostly) on the future of the “world’s most beautiful avenue”. The museum is closed until further notice.

Champs-Elysées, histoire et perspectives” is a free exhibition to see at the Pavillon de l’Arsenal and returns on the evolution of the avenue and its possible changes. From February 14 to May 10, 2020, you are invited to reinvent the Champs (as we say).

Due to the health recommendations to fight against the propagation of the Covid-19 virus, the Pavillon de l'Arsenal is temporarily closed and our events postponed.

We thank you for your understanding and wiill let you know as soon as possible about the reopening and when the programmation will resume and we hope to share it very soon.

Take care of yourselves and see you very soon.

Three centuries after their creation, cars, noise, pollution, tourism, globalization of the commercial offer, abandoned gardens are detrimental to the use of the Avenue and its appropriation by Parisians and tourists.

By the way, Parisians only represent 5% of the users of the avenue. Based on this sad analysis from the study carried on the initiative of the Comité Champs-Elysées by Philippe Chiambaretta with the partnership of about fifty professionals, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal raises awareness about its current state. But also highlights the issues from the modern ambition.

Sprucing up and revegetating the avenue, making the soils more permeable, facilitating soft mobilities, promoting the heritage and even allowing inhabitants to regain their Champs-Elysées. So are the stakes and potentials raised by the exhibition and the study.

To try and find answers, the Pavillon de l’Arsenal invites everyone to the potential metamorphosis via debates, playful workshops and other conferences.

More than an average exhibition, “Champs-Elysées, histoire et perspectives” has been created as a collective and participative adventure. We know what we have to do…
