Built for the 1900 World Fair
Both were designed for the 1900 World Fair, and the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais face each other on either side of the avenue Winston-Churchill, along the Seine, in the axis of the Alexandre-III bridge. However, the purpose of the two palaces, like their architectural style, differs. The Grand Palais houses three complexes – the Nef (Nave), the Palais de la Découverte, and the Galeries Nationales – which host major events, a science museum and temporary exhibitions. The Petit Palais houses the Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris. It is rich in 1,300 works that focus on the 19th century.
