CLOSED FOR WORKS - The Galeries nationales du Grand Palais host exhibitions of international renown all year round in various wings of the building, particularly under the Grande Nef, the largest glass roof in the world.

Bordering the Champs-Élysées, the Grand Palais was built to demonstrate and exhibit French artistic and technical know-how. Built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition and dedicated "by the Republic to the glory of French art", it was classified as a historic monument in 2000. Since 1901, it has hosted many prestigious events: the Motor Show, the Aeronautics Show, the Household Arts Show... Horse shows, major artistic exhibitions, flagship events such as Monumenta, which is held every two years under the monumental space of the Nave or the Fiac, Paris Photo, Art Paris Art Fair... are still taking place there today. From the very first days of its existence, each of these events attracted thousands of visitors and its programme still places it today as one of the leading Parisian cultural sites.
