The Large Palace

 

About The Grand Palais

The Grand Palace is a large glass exhibition hall built for the Universelle Exposition of 1900. It was built at the same time as its neighbour the Petit Palais.


The Grand Palais has not been without misadventure, having suffered from floods in 1910 when the river Seine breached its banks. In 1993, a glass panel fell 148 feet from the dome roof. Fortunately nobody was injured in the incident, but the central hall was closed by the authorities until the integrity of the building could be assured. It reopened in the autumn of 2005.
