Overview

Next to the Jardins du Trocadéro, in a wing of the architecturally striking Palais de Chaillot, the Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine is devoted to the appreciation of architecture throughout the nation. It is divided into three galleries, each showing an important aspect of this art form: the permanent collection shows a large number of casts and reproductions of churches and cathedrals all over France from the 12th Century on, as well as models of important buildings from the 19th and 20th Centuries. The third part of the museum is the mural paintings gallery. Experts in the field hail this museum as a testimony to the centuries of architecture in France. The permanent collection is often joined by temporary exhibits, contests, workshops and nighttime events. A café on the pavilion offers virtual visits on computer screens to continue experiencing the architecture while enjoying a meal or a snack.
