There’s something there for everyone: photos of Morrissey fans, a slideshow paying tribute to Kurt Cobain, sculptures, contemporary works about our consumer society, and a vast collection of fun creations made by Fabrice Hyber that will delight both the young and old, where you can touch the works, get inside them, smell them and get lost amongst them.
The Little Palais also has a series of activities aimed at younger visitors aged 3-10 at extremely affordable prices ranging from €8 to €12 – perfect for introducing your little ones to contemporary art and for opening up their imaginations.
The Palais de Tokyo is huge, and its many works are spread over 22,000m2 and across seven floors; it’s all too easy to become lost amongst it all. Before your visit, I advise you to download the dedicated iPhone application, created in partnership with Orange and named as the “Site of the Day” at the Favorite Website Awards. With this application you can:
- choose what you want to see by consulting the plan in the Agenda section
- easily get your bearings using the Palais section, where you will find a detailed plan of each level
- find out more about the exhibits and the artistic approach through the Focus section, which takes a closer look at certain artists
- find all of the practical information you need as well as the tucked-away areas of the museum that are not to be missed in the Info section
Make sure you’re wearing your trainers and some comfortable clothes as you’ll be spending the whole day in this palace of contemporary art; let your imagination run free as you walk around the exhibits. In my selection below, you can find a little taster of what you can expect:
I hope you all enjoy your visit, and don’t forget to come back to leave us your comments below
