Paris Galleries

Exploring at galleries in Paris is dreamlike, walking through colorful wooden doors and majestic courtyards, finding yourself at the entrance of grand space filled with fine art.

I've only explored Paris galleries a few times, so I'm sure there's a lot missing from this list. That being said if you're visiting Paris and want to see some art (outside of the incredible museums) these galleries are a solid group.

List of Paris Galleries

If you're in Paris and want to explore my list - check out my google map here.

The following list is laid out by neighborhood since that's how I usually plan my gallery visits. As always, some of these may not be exactly in the neighborhood listed, but they should be at least close. Paris is divided into 20 Arrondissements, and most of the galleries are in the 4th arrondissement in an area called Le Marais.

Le Marais

Perrotin

Website: https://www.perrotin.com/

Perrotin has two Paris locations - 60 rue de Turenne, and 76 rue de Turenne. 76 rue de Turenne is definitely the more regal of the two, but they're right around the corner from one another, so visiting both shouldn't be too challenging.

Perrotin's 60 rue de Turenne location is the more modern of the two, with two gallery spaces on the ground floor and lower level.

Perrotin 2 Address: 76 rue de Turenne, Paris, 75003, France

Perrotin, Paris

The most famous and beautiful of probably all Perrotin's locations, you can't miss it thanks to its grand staircases.

Door to get to Almine Rech

Above is what you should expect when visiting most galleries in Paris. There's usually a large wooden door with a sign out front, just walk on through. I know it feels a little strange at first but it's not trespassing and is completely normal.

Once you're in the courtyard start looking for the gallery entrance. Sometimes there will be a few galleries tucked away in these charming spaces.

After visiting the galleries in Le Marais I'd recommend popping into Chez Janou for dinner.

The interesting thing about Gagosian is that he keeps his gallery brand/aesthetic consistent across all of his locations. So it doesn't matter if you're in London, New York, Paris or LA you're going to get a super modern box.
