We didn’t actually go inside the building but were walking around and saw it and wanted some pics. The columns, details and arches are nicely constructed and looked freshly made. I found out it was renovated not long ago. The building looks like a grand...More

We love this museum. The building alone is worth a visit. The main entrance hall is breathtaking. I love that most of the rooms are illuminated by natural light. Very rare in museums. The permanent collection is varied and wonderful. You have to pay for...More

We found the Petite Palais is easy to get to.. The entry fee did not have a discount for seniors as stated online. Entry fee is for special exhibits. The Impressionists in London was well worth it. We then stopped at the cafe for a...More

This is a well curated and displayed show of paintings and sculptures from French artists in exile in London after the bloody events of the Commune around 1870. Carpeaux,Tissot,Sisley Monet and Pissarro are some of the many artists represented.

We visited the Petit Palais on a recent trip to Paris to take in a special exhibit on impressionist artists who painted in London during the late 1800’s. It was one of the best impressionist exhibits we’ve ever seen. It was well laid out and...More

I go to this free museum each time I am in Paris. The building is beautiful and the permanent collection is lovely. Gorgeous cafe in the courtyard. Often very good temporary expos, but you usually have an admission fee for those.

A bit of the beaten path, but definitely worth a visit since the permanent collections include some works by Monet and Sisley. Very nice to explore and enjoy the art while walking the Champs-Elysees. Even better given the fact it has free admission !

The cafe was self-service when I was there and the line was long and slow even for a beverage so I did not eat there. The outdoor part was not set up for outdoor seating in winter. I would think it would be more enjoyable to... More
