“We didn't get inside,”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

but we enjoyed the exterior. Laura, our guide from Babylon Tours, told us the history and got us a close peek through the doors. Exhibits had dividers inside, so the sweeping vista shown on the Trip Advisor web site was not possible.

Don't know if there is a fee for admission if there aren't exhibits inside. A few minutes is enough to enjoy the architecture. If there is an exhibit you want to see, then allocate your time accordingly.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We didn't go in, but so enjoyed walking across the Pont Alexandre and viewing the Grand Palais and Petit Palais form many angles, that I wanted to give it 5 stars for the great pleasure.

“Mapplethorpe Exhibit...breathtaking”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Go, and go again, if you have an opportunity. The largest collection of Mapplethorpe's gathered in one place, at least in Europe. A wonderful exhibition.

The Grand Palais des Beaux-Arts is a unique building of the city of Paris located near the Champs Elysees. The architecture of the outside of the building is simply magnificent.

“A Review of the Mapplethorpe Exhibit”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We visited the Palais to see the rest of the Mapplethorpe exhibit that is also at the Musee Rodin. The space was nice enough. The works were incredible, and this exhibit is a must if you're in paris and still available.
