In the drawing room
Now on  - Jul 12, 2020

Véronique and Louis-Antoine Prat started hoarding beautiful French drawings in 1970. By 1995, it had grown into one of the most complete and spectacular art collections in the world – so much so, that the Louvre took notice and displayed the drawings in the first exhibition of its kind at the prestigious museum.

25 years later, Le Petit Palais has decided to organize a new and expanded presentation of this collection with an exhibition called In the drawing room. It coincides with the opening of the Salon du Dessin in 2020, an event that attracts French and international art lovers. In 25 years, there will probably be another throwback exhibition recalling the memory of this seminal event.

This is your chance to say, "I was there."

The Golden Age of Danish Painting
Now on  - Aug 16, 2020

It's been almost 35 years since the Petit Palais dedicated an exhibition to the Golden Age of Danish painting – but the wait is over, as some of the finest art to come out of 19th-century Denmark returns to Paris in an all-new exhibition. This event is jointly organized by the Nationalmuseum Stockholm, the National Gallery of Denmark, and the Petit Palais.

Featuring more than 200 works by leading artists of the period, including Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Christen Købke, Martinus Rørbye, and Constantin Hansen, this exhibit focuses on a number of key themes relevant to the social, political, economic, and cultural conditions of the period. Get an overview of life in Copenhagen, such as the experiences of artists, what it was like to travel, the landscapes, and the family structures of the time.


Browse the Museum of Fine Arts in Petit Palais, one of Paris's most breathtaking buildings. See works by Monet, Sisley and more in the free-to-enter permanent exhibition and access one of the changing temporary exhibitions.

Built for the purpose of hosting the 1900 Exposition Universelle, the stunning Petit Palais was spruced up in 2005.

It's home to priceless art from the French and Italian Renaissance, ancient and medieval collections, 19th-century French paintings and sculptures, Art Nouveau creations and more.

Wonderful, slightly eccentric collection of objects d'Art. Something completely different.

The Petit Palais is not a "Paris secret" but should be on the list of top places to visit, especially if you want to be in a less crowded museum. The place is well organized and there is a lot to see (paintings, sculpture). It also has a nice cafe at the courtyard, where you can take a break while enjoying a coffee or snack. I spent about 3 hrs there; found it to be a great way to start my visit to Paris. From there one can walk to Champs Elysees and L'Arc du Thriomphe. Getting the ticket online allowed me to skip the purchase line and save time (just show your ticket on your cell phone); security check was quick.

The French romantics is a very good exhibition. However it is long and very detailed so to enjoy the exhibition I would recommend a break in the middle. the cafe at petit palais is exceptional with a good cake selection and value formulae lunches
