The museum is internationally renowned for its collection of impressionist art and 19th century works. It was initially a palatial train station and was opened for the Exposition Universelle of 1900.
The Grand Palais was designed for the Exposition Universelle of 1900. It is located just off the Champs-Elysées, and is a stunning example of "Belle Epoque" architecture and design.
