Built for the Universal Exhibition in 1900, the Grand Palais has the largest glass roof in Europe. Major exhibitions are held in the Galleries.

The major cultural events programmed by the Réunion des musées nationaux(RMN) in the Galeries nationales are based on a broad and generous vision of art history. Exhibits include monographs of artists, major artistic movements, fine art retrospectives, thematic exhibitions, an open approach to the 20th century, and to all forms of sculpture and creative uses of materials, and all civilisations.

For the last 40 years, the Galeries nationales have been the historic venue for major exhibitions. Nearly 50 major shows have been staged in an area of nearly 57,000 square feet in collaboration with leading French and foreign museums!
