The Palais de la Porte Dorée is an exceptional Art Deco building, listed as a historical monument. Situated on the edge of the Bois de Vincennes, it was built for the 1931 international colonial exhibition. Since 2007, it has housed the Musée National de l’histoire de l’immigration, which takes a new look at the history of France by showing the role played by immigrants in the country's economic development, social developments and cultural life. The new permanent tour, which is larger than the previous one and more accessible, especially to young people, unfolds over 1800 m² a chronological, thematic and sensitive narrative in eleven key dates, from 1685 to the present day, with a final section devoted to contemporary issues.
Combining archive documents, photographs, paintings, sculptures, posters, life stories, contemporary artistic creations and digital mediation tools for all ages, it provides each visitor with the essential elements to learn about the history of immigration and to understand that it is an indivisible component of the history of France.
