Les Coulisses de l'UNESCO en anglais


What to expect

Right in the heart of Paris, UNESCO House is the headquarters of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. It occupies a remarkable site and building that you will discover with your guide. The tour focusses on UNESCO’s projects and impact. Accompanied by your guide, you will tour the walkways, modern corridors and conference rooms that have hosted the world's greatest figures.

Far from being a classic museum, the collection of XIXe 20th-century artworks associates masterpieces with UNESCO’s missions in an unusual and unexpected way. Calder rubs shoulders with Picasso and Giacometti and the tour guide presents the artworks in a surprising and pedagogical way.

What is included :

  • The guided tour lasting 1hr30
  • The commentary and anecdotes of your guide
