  • Modern/contemporary art

The temple of contemporary art in Paris has been revamped and is now a busy arts centre accessible to all. An absolute must see!

Its new surface area now reaches around 22,000m². The Palais de Tokyo has doubled its surface area after ten months of work, making it the largest contemporary arts centre in Europe. Young and established artists present their work on the four levels of this versatile exhibition space that now also showcases music, design and fashion. From the bright upper gallery to the more intimate lower gallery, everything now contributes to create a space that everyone can enjoy.

You can also visit this living space par excellence to have lunch at Tokyo Eat or sip a cocktail in the new restaurant opening onto the recently built outdoor terrace. You can also attend a performance, a film or a conference, or browse in the specialist bookstore. It’s also a suitable place for families to enjoy as children can participate in the Tok-Tok workshop designed especially for them. No risk of getting bored!
