The imposing Beaux-Arts building was erected for the 1900 World Exposition. Nowadays, it houses many interesting exhibitions beneath its huge Art Nouveau glass roof. The complex comprises of several separate galeries nationales (individual exhibition rooms) and also of the Palace de la Découverte which serves as a science museum. At night, the whole complex is beautifully illuminated.
