Description

Located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, close to the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower, UNESCO House has been home to the headquarters of this specialised agency of the United Nations (UN) since 1958. A treasure of modern architecture, it is the result of a collaboration among several emblematic figures of the twentieth century, including the three architects: Bernard Zehrfuss, Marcel Breuer and Luigi Nervi.

This guided tour, which focuses on the actions and impact of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, will allow you to discover its operation as well as its values. Accompanied by your guide, you will pass through the institution's iconic spaces, such as its impressive conference rooms, walkways, concrete corridors, the only Japanese garden of Paris, or its meditation space designed by the famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando.

This visit will also be an opportunity to discover the exceptional works of art housed in UNESCO House: from Miró to Picasso, from Giacometti to Calder, a unique and unexpected collection of more than 600 contemporary masterpieces unfolds along the way.

Whether you are interested in UNESCO's missions, passionate about art and architecture, or simply want to know how this famous organisation works, this unusual guided tour in the heart of Paris will arouse your curiosity, and inspire you.

IMPORTANT: Please note that you will need to pass a security check to get to the meeting point. We recommend you to arrive 15 minutes prior the time of your visit.
ID document is also required. Access will be denied to visitors without an ID document.
