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.

Brilliant find yesterday when it was raining it was free to get in (donations if you wanted to) the art was stunning as we're the ceilings in the entrance hall of the building I can't praise this enough. If you like statues and amazing architecture of the building you will love this. I just love Paris
Amazing museum with a lot of items on exhibit. The range of items is really incredible, from Ancient Greek artifacts all the way to modern art. The best part is that admission is absolutely free! With multiple floors it's easy to spend a couple of hours inside (though when I first walked in I had thought there were much fewer pieces on display, given how spread out they are).
The permanent collection of the Petit Palais is free. It is quite a mixed collection, but has many great items. Certainly worth wandering around. There is usually a temporary special exhibition as well. Those always cost something, but are also more focused than the permanent collection and have been worth seeing. The cafeteria has good dishes and sitting in the garden courtyard is pleasant and relaxing.
Such a great place. The temporary exhibitions are always beautiful and interesting but also very busy. The permanent collection are beautiful too and can be extremely quiet. A beautiful place to visit.
This museum was such a great surprise. The gardens beautiful too. The art work, building, and gardens make this a triple delight. I have been to Paris many times, and only visited this place recently. I should have come long before... This is not the Louvre, but a very worthy stop for a couple hours.
