In 2018, the Petit Palais was awarded the QualiPARIS label, a distinction awarded by an independent organisation that testifies to the quality of the reception given to visitors.



The Petit Palais was the subject of a study conducted by the company TEST among the visitors in 2020. Despite a year marked by a difficult health context, the results were excellent: 97% of those questioned were satisfied with their visit (89% of them very satisfied). Visitors were particularly satisfied with the cleanliness of the premises (99%), the way in which the works were displayed (97%) and the number of people in the galleries (96%). 95% of them said they would return to the Petit Palais, primarily for its exhibitions (82%).
