Don't miss anything
The little brother of the Grand Palais, it was also built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900. Today it houses the Museum of Beaux-Arts of the City of Paris. Some call him the youngest brother of the Louvre, because the collection is mainly of classical art.
Some interesting details about the main facade are:
- The sculpture on the door is of a seated woman who has a boat in her hands, symbolizing Paris.
- On the right, a group of the Seine with its tributaries.
- On the left, the group of the four seasons with young women holding the wheat and fruits.
The museum is free and worth entering to observe the works and this classic structure of the Belle Epoque inside.
Free for permanent exhibitions.
