City of Architecture and Heritage
Next to the Jardins du Trocadero , in a wing of the architecturally striking Palais de Chaillot , the Cite de l'Architecture et du Patrimoine is devoted to the appreciation of architecture from throughout the nation. It is divided into three galleries, each showing an important aspect of this art form: molds of important buildings, mural paintings, and a gallery of modern and contemporary architecture. Experts in the field hail this museum as a testimony to the centuries of architecture in France. The permanent collection is often joined by temporary exhibits, contests and workshops, and nighttime events. A cafe on the pavilion offers virtual visits on computer screens to continue experiencing the architecture while enjoying a meal or a snack.
