Description

A fashion temple located near the Place du Trocadéro, the Palais Galliera is also a glorious architectural site. Built at the end of 19th century by the architect Léon Ginain for the Duchess of Galliera, it is worth visiting just to admire the Beaux-Arts style architecture and linger in the exquisite gardens.

The interior of this beautiful building is equally as interesting, however, with its banisters, bay windows and ironwork from the same workshop that produced the metalwork for the Eiffel Tower, and its refined rooms with high painted ceilings and parquet floors that creak underfoot — a perfect setting for the 257,750 pieces that make up one of the finest collections of clothing and accessories in the world.

More than 250,000 garments and accessories

You will find exhibitions devoted to the extravagant wardrobe of the elegant Countess Greffulhe, a muse of Marcel Proust, and retrospectives celebrating 1950s couture or the famous Lanvin fashion house. There is always a buzz of excitement around the museum’s temporary exhibitions.

Until March 14th, the palace presents the first retrospective in France of an exceptional seamstress: Gabrielle Chanel, fashion manifesto. Not to be missed!

From the summer of 2021, the museum's priceless collections will be presented through a permanent route never before seen in France. The masterpieces or little-known pieces from the reserves of the Palais Galliera will shed light on the evolution of fashion over more than three centuries, the transformations of the silhouette - from the flying dress of the 1730s to the avant-garde creations of Comme des Garçons? Let's make a date!
