The Petit Palais is not so small at all and a really beautiful building to see and visit.You can find ancient artifacts, medieval objects, rare manuscripts and books and work by Pisarro, Morisot, Cassatt, Manet, Renoir, and Gauguin. We went to see particularly, 40 Years of Yves Saint Laurent, which covered the designers life work from 1957 to 2002. A great show to see in a great building to house it. It runs until August 2010 so plenty of time to see it. A definite must see !!
