I visited Grand Palais for Photo Paris and was very impressed with the venue. Grand Palace is truly grand and the renovation makes it seem timeless.

You can spend 20 minutes walking through the construction outside this huge building to get to the entrance to "your" show. Then another 15 waiting to be let in, even though you've bought a ticket for a specific time. It's cold outside, it could even...More

I came to see the Gauguin the alchemist and Irving Penn exhibitions. They were both fantastic and I really enjoyed them. The Gauguin in particular was very busy. Definitely worth pre-booking to avoid the queues.
