Like many structures in the area, it was inaugurated in 1900 and since then, has hosted a wide variety of events, exhibitions and collections. From equestrian shows to Chanel fashion shows, from military hospital to a point of the WWII liberation of Paris, Parisians have always known to check out what's happening at the Grand Palais. There are also permanent exhibits, such as the science museum, National Society of Fine Arts and the Galeries nationales du Grand Palais.
Great way to get around the city we loved it!!!
A great way to Paris. Highly recommended. Jumped on and off where we liked and also gave us some great ideas when planning ahead for what we would like to visit.
