Built in 1900, the Petit Palais is a not-so-petit but incredibly beautiful building that hosts art collections from the French and Italian Renaissance, Flemish and Dutch paintings and other such precious artefacts. It also hosts interesting temporary exhibitions that range from French artistes like Delacroix and Renoir to artistes around the world. The Musee des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris offers a large artistic panorama for the art connoisseur and the small little adjoining garden makes for a lovely stroll.

Petit Palais, Paris Reviews - Write a Review
Wonderful art museum - very large palace at one time with gardens and good restaurant. Always a place to sit, rest, and observe. Small expos mingle within the permanent collection- jaw dropping works of art - sculpture, canvas' large and small. Very lively place. Will go back. A good walk from the gardens and the Lourve.
This is a good place to spend 2 hours. Entrance to permanent exhibition is free and there are some nice paintings and sculptures by Masters. The place itself is gorgeous too. Have coffee in the cafe inside.
The main building is FREE TO ENTER. I have no idea how, but it is. A masterpiece of beautiful architecture, housing some of the most lovely examples of ancient to Art Nouveau design - I couldn't believe it. Go out into the little circular garden and enjoy the painted arches there and golden angels on the roof. JUST GO. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!!
You first have to queue to enter the building and then queue to buy a ticket. The staff was pretty rude to us because we were misinformed about the entry. The place and artworks there are still very pretty and we spent a good time visiting.
Great garden and nice area to have coffee, museum is great too. Coffee could improve in taste though
