The Small Palace, also known as the Museum of Fine Arts in Paris, can be considered as a purely artistic complement to the Grand Palace, located just across the street, which instead includes salons and events.
Discover the Museum of Fine Arts in Paris, housed in the Small Palace, a real jewel of 22,000 square meters. The Small Palace was originally built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition and was transformed into the Palais des Beaux-Arts in the city of Paris two years later to host permanent exhibitions. Rembrandt, Gabriel Metsu, Cézanne, Courbet, David, Degas, Delacroix, Fragonard, Renoir, Manet, Monet, Watteau, or Tiepolo, all eras are swept away. Not only will you have access to masterpieces in a dream setting, but you will also benefit from many side activities if you wish. Lectures, art workshops for children and adults, seminars, art history courses and shows are regularly offered to visitors.
