Cité de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine

Recommended
In the Paris Wing of the Palais de Chaillot, this centre for architecture and heritage counts three departments: the Institut Français d'Architecture, founded in 1981, the Centre des Hautes Études de Chaillot and the Museum of French Monuments, founded in 1879, which displays life-size replicas of the main French monuments from the Middle Ages to the 18C. The rooms on the second floor house mural paintings. Finally, the gallery of modern and contemporary architecture presents an in-depth vision of architecture and urbanism.
