Following the introduction of the state of emergency and to ensure the safety of visitors, the Petit Palais applies the preventive measures decided by the government for public administrations. The introduction of luggage, including cabin-size suitcases and large bags, is prohibited within the museum. The Petit Palais would like to thank its visitors in advance for their understanding of the slowdown caused by the security checks at the entrances.



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%).
