From May 25 to November 16, 2024, discover Paris City Hall's event exhibition for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games: "Paris! the capital presents itself to the world! Come and (re)discover Paris, its wealth, its culture, its events, its tragedies and everything that makes up its identity.

Hôtel de Ville hosts its new event exhibition until November 16, 2024. "Paris! The capital presents itself to the world" is the name of this exhibition, which should tell you more about the city, whether you're a Parisian, a local or a tourist just passing through. As you know, the city is hosting the Olympic Games this year. Tourists from all over the world will be visiting the city, particularly at the Terrasse des Jeux on the Parvis. What better way to present the French capital in all its facets to the world?

The "Paris!" exhibition tells the story of the capital's last ten years. Through giant portraits by Marguerite Bornhauser on "Who are the Parisians?", an immersion into Paris by bike, street-art and a life-size school street, Paris reveals itself. We travel along the Seine, discovering heritage and cultural landmarks, and a multitude of the city's secrets, all presented in a fun and educational way.
