Le Petit Palais

While the outside of Petit Palais is certainly impressive, many visitors head here to enjoy what's on the inside. The palace's main function is as the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts) of the City of Paris and it is home to an incredibly impressive array of artwork spanning several centuries. Some call it a mini Louvre, but without the crowds.
Indeed, you will find works of art at Musée des Beaux-Arts that
The ornate entrance range from antiquity to the 20th century. Most of the collection is the legacy of Auguste Dutuit, who left the museum additional money to buy yet more artwork. In all, this museum owns about 12,000 prints and hundreds more tapestries, sculptures, medieval objects, rare manuscripts, and icons.
