I visited Grand Palais many times before and didn't think that it's very special. The Grand Palais building of 1900th is impressive, it's difficult to imagine how the architect decided to build such huge building many many years ago. My last visit there was to Cartier exhibition, I was surprised that people were ready to stay in a very long... More

Please visit this exhibition. It is video art very interesting. Try to book the first session as there are several videos starting from 5 minutes to 35 minutes. You need a lot of time to see all . Eye opener. Highly recommended

This is the first exhibition I've been to in Paris (moved here last year) and been disappointed with. I bought my ticket online through fnac spectacles which I recommend you do too. The queue is enormous and takes a long time to move - I barely moved in 20 minutes last week so I gave up and bought online. Either... More

Impressive exhibition of the works of an underrated artist. This is an extensive showing of his paintings and prints. Vallotton had talent and wit ,did not necessarily blend in with the movements of the time although he was accepted by the Nabis. Given that the venue is the Grand Palais, it could have been given a lot more space. As... More

On the Right Bank near gorgeous Alexandre III bridge, this is the place to check out if interested in seeing some of the world's best temporary exhibitions. Can buy timed tics online in advance and then you will normally be let in within 30 minutes of the allotted time, no matter how long the queues to get in are. I... More

The Palais itself is very inspiring, and really a wonderful showcase for any exhibition held there ! The display is always very clever, and the rooms are large and offer quite enough space for the paintings on display.The only nick is you... More

Went to the Grand Palais for the Christmas fun fair on December 23rd, and it was a pretty magical day out for me and 3 year old companion. We loved it and were completely entranced as soon as we walked in. We got there around noon and it was quiet enough for her to walk on to most of the... More

The large glass encased part of the building is one of the greatest in all of Europe. It is a masterpiece, a clear shell that encloses in sunlight, traveling exhibits and garden shows. Built for the 1900 World Exposition, the building is an art nouveau gem. The iron work alone is absolutely stunning. If you are in Paris when there... More

I visited this after already visiting three museums and all I wanted to do was take a photo from the inside. But I found out that I had to buy tickets to one of the exhibitions going on inside just to get in there. I didn't bother.
