The Beaux-Arts de Paris sites, in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Saint-Ouen, are devoted in priority to Beaux-Arts de Paris students’ artistic education.

Heritage buildings are accessible during exhibitions and events such as Journées du Patrimoine or Ateliers Ouverts. 

During these events, admission is free.

Visits are offered to the public, free of charge, during Journées du Patrimoine (September), Journées d’information (early February) or Ateliers Ouverts (last weekend in June).

Times and conditions of access will be indicated on the website a few weeks in advance.



For the exhibitions at the Palais des expositions (13 quai Malaquais) and at Drawings and graphic arts department (14 rue Bonaparte), a responsible ticket office allows you to choose your entrance ticket.
