You might think that being stood opposite the Grand Palais would give the Petit Palais something of an inferiority complex. Not so. The majestic main gate immediately sets the tone with its gold paint that shines in the sun. Size doesn’t always matter, and once you step inside you’ll see why …
Another vestige of the Universal Exposition of 1900, the building became Paris’ Museum of Fine Arts, and now houses an important and diverse collection from the 19th and 20th Centuries.
Neglected over the years, a major renovation saw it reopen in 2005 looking nothing short of splendid. The painted ceilings of the main entrance are amazing, lofty and colourful. Turn right to pay to enter the temporary exhibitions (recently Goya, Kurosawa…) if you like, but we think the permanent collection is one of Paris’ greatest bargains; the exhibits beautiful, the setting incredible and entrance is absolutely free.The museum cleverest trick - albeit controversial - is trying to mix its collection with modern art, often displaying them side by side, giving interesting juxtapositions with contemporary sculpture or even photography. Oh and their cafe is lovely, the gardens inviting, the bookshop interesting… have we convinced you yet?
