Located on the hill of Chaillot, the Renaissance-inspired Palais Galliera houses the Fashion Museum of the City of Paris.

Through temporary monographic or thematic exhibitions, the museum presents part of its priceless and fragile collections that bear witness to the creative genius of fashion from the 18th century to the present day. After two years of major renovation and extension work, the Palais Galliera reopened its doors in October 2020. Visitors discovered its new garden level galleries, allowing the museum to display large-scale exhibitions and to present a frequently renewed collection, tracing the history of fashion from the 18th century to the present day.
