When travelling in Paris, I highly recommend that you visit the lesser known museum – Petit Palais.
This museum is an architectural beauty dating back to 1900, situated on the avenue des Champs-Elysées. The impressive building was built for the Universal Exposition and houses the Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris. It also contains a magnificent courtyard and garden.
As well as housing impressive art collections, the beautiful itself is worthy of visiting. The gardens are also lovely offering a peaceful haven where you can stop and have a drink.
There are over 1,300 artworks in the museum (sculptures, paintings, tapestries, art objects, icons). From Ancient and Medieval collections, to French and Italian Renaissance.
So when you are travelling in Paris, make sure you stop by this wonderful museum. For more information about this lovely museum press here
