Palais Galliera


Paris’ Fashion Museum warehouses some 100,000 outfits and accessories – from canes and umbrellas to fans and gloves – from the 18th century to the present day. The sumptuous Italianate palace and gardens date from the mid-19th century. It was closed for renovations at the time of research; check online for updates.
