It sounds like an exciting program, but the Palais Galliera is worth the detour, even without the artifice. Conceived by the Duchess of Galliera as a place to showcase her art collection to the general public, themansion was built in 1894. Unfortunately, due to a clerical error, the Duchesse de Galliera was unable to donate her collection to the city of Paris, preferring instead to donate it to the Palazzo Rosso in Genoa.

The Renaissance-inspired building was then converted into a museum of industrial art, failing to receive the Duchess de Galliera's collections. It wasn't until 1977 that the Paris City Council restored the building's original identity: the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris was finally born.

Today, the City of Paris' collection comprises over 200,000 items, including clothing, accessories, photographs and graphic arts from the 18th century to the present day.

Intrigued by this program? There's only one thing left to do: visit the Palais Galliera on May 18!
