Palais de Tokyo

Created in 2002, with its 22 000 m² Palais de Tokyo stands out for its energy as one of the largest contemporary art centers in Europe.

Avenue du President Wilson 13

Palais de Tokyo was created in 2002. Far from being a traditional museum, it was the pioneer of a movement of reconciliation between Paris and contemporary art.

In 2012 it became one of the largest sites devoted to contemporary creativity in Europe, and it now extends right to the River Seine, forming a link on the side of the hill between the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elysées.
