Explore 1,000 years of the history of architecture at the Cité de l’Architecture & du Patrimoine. Situated at the Palais de Chaillot, opposite the Eiffel Tower, the Cité de l’Architecture & du Patrimoine presents some 1,000 years of architectural creations.
The museum offers visitors a journey through the rich architectural heritage of France, from the Middle Ages to the present day, stretching over 8,000 m² . Some examples include life-size productions of the doorway of Chartres cathedral, the painted cupola of the cathedral of Cahors and an apartment from Corbusier’s ‘Cité radieuse’, reproduced in full size.
Models, videos and drawings complete the collections. Diverse temporary exhibitions (monographs of architects, exhibitions relating to current themes, exhibition workshops for children, etc.) focus on history or the challenges of today.
Guided tours, video guides and games for children all contribute to making the greatest masterpieces accessible to everyone. Come and see how architecture and the urban landscape which forms the background to all our everyday lives have evolved over the years.
The Cité also has a bookshop cum shop and a cafe with a terrace and wonderful views of Paris.
