On European Heritage Days 2021, Fine Arts enthusiasts can head to the Petit Palais. Designed first for the 1900 World’s Fair in Paris, the ensemble including the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais and the Pont Alexandre III is undoubtedly the most beautiful symbol of the “Fine Arts” style prevailing by the end of the Belle Epoque era.
In 1902, it is agreed that the Petit Palais is to house the Fine Arts Museum of the city of Paris. It first houses orders or purchases made by the city of Paris directly to artists, and bequests from major Fine Arts collectors.
This Saturday September 18 and Sunday 19, 2021 flash tours are planned at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 for 30 minutes to tell you more about the story of the Petit Palais, its architecture and 1900 style... From the main galleries to the garden and its decorated peristyle. Meet in the main hall.
Last but not least, the Petit Palais invites us to a big participative workshop with a gigantic drawing to color with your family.
And as part of the Petit Palais's application for the Budget Participative of the City of Paris, come and enjoy the peristyle's gem, the decorative mural by Paul Baudoüin, along with a model about the mural technique and a horoscope set inspired by the mural nodding at the seasons, months, and star signs according to the revolutionary calendar. Meet in the garden.
