Once I was done with the exploration of Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre Paris, it was the time to check out one of the most popular museums in the entire world. But before that, I wanted to
revive myself. My legs were a little tired and I needed something to energize myself up. So I went to a coffee shop, and had a cup of perfect French style hot chocolate. My next destination was
Petit Palais Art Museum France.
With the fire in my belly to check out the history of France, I hired a cab and moved towards the museum. The museum was located on Avenue Nicolas II, at the Grand Palais. The Avenue Nicholas II is also known as Avenue Winston-Churchill. The distance between the two attractions was almost 5 kilometers. Considering the traffic in the noon, it took me almost half an hour to reach the spot.
It was almost 1pm in my watch when I reached the Petit Palais Art Museum. The design of the building was Beaux-Arts style, which I read somewhere while searching on the net. The size was
absolutely huge, and the main attraction of the outer design was the pillars. As a matter of fact, there are 14 museums in the entire city of Paris. With the curiosity to see what things lay
inside the building, I paid the cab driver and walked towards the main entrance.
Most of the items showcased inside the museum were from the period between 1800 and 1900, mostly arts. The inner gallery features highly valuable treasures in metal work, ivory, jewelry, tapestry, as well as porcelain items, assimilated from some of the most vital assortments of France. On the other hand, the outer gallery comprised of royal French furniture. The assortment was quite massive, and it took me almost two hours to check out the entire museum.
By the time I was about to leave the museum, I was quite hungry and tired too. No doubt, it was an amazing day for me, which allowed me to take a look into the past of Paris and France. In just half an hour, I was resting inside my hotel room.
