Petit Palais

Outside view of the Petit Palais

The Petit Palais was built in 1900 for the Universal Exhibition. It became a museum in 1902. It was designed by Charles Girault. It has a unique design that is based on a trapezium shape that consists of four wings that surround a semi-circular garden area. As you will see in the pictures, it is quite extraordinary inside the main lobby. The decorative murals on the ceilings and walls took over twenty years to complete!
