    Petit Palais, City of Paris Fine Art Museum

    The not-so-little palace.

    Situated just off the Champs-Elysées avenue, the Petit Palais, like its neighbour the Grand Palais was constructed for the Exposition universelle of 1900.
    Since 1902, the building has housed the Museum of Fine Arts of Paris.

    The Petit Palais Museum reopened in 2005 after a restoration programme, and now has its Fine Art collections on permanent display, with works dating from Antiquity to the beginning of the 20th century.

    The area located to the side of the Queen's court regularly hosts temporary exhibitions.
    At the heart of the Petit Palais, you'll find yourself transported back to the year 1900 as you sit in the restaurant, the internal garden completing the scene perfectly.
