What's not included

Guided tour
  • Wonder at the palace's Art Deco facade and explore one of Paris's lesser-known architectural gems
  • Trace the history and vital role played by immigration in France's construction and development
  • Enjoy one of the best aquatic collections in France including fish, turtles, alligators and more!

You won't often find passions for architecture, aquatic animals, and human history catered for in one place. But then, the Palais de la Porte Dorée is more than merely an exhibition hall.

Skip the lines and look around this Art Deco masterpiece, which permanently exhibits the unique and fascinating history of immigration in France, alongside a rather tantalizing tropical aquarium housing over 15,000 different animals and 750 separate species.

Originally designed for the Paris Colonial Exhibition of 1931, the palace's exterior is decorated with sculptures, a stunningly detailed bas-relief adorning the outer walls, and fabulous frescoes inside.

Besides being a bit of a tongue-twister, the National Museum of the History of Immigration timelines France's long reliance on migrant labor, and the contribution of immigrants to the country's economic development, social evolution and cultural life. Browse the permanent exhibitions, but be sure to look out for interesting temporary displays too.

Once your brain is full for the day, let your eyes take over as you wander down into the city's most vibrant basement, home to the Tropical Aquarium. It's swimming with exotic fish, colorful coral and even a pair of rare albino alligators. It's a must-see, whether you're enamored by electric eels, or keen on crustaceans!
