With its collection of 770,000 precious specimens that recount the history of Earth and our solar system, the Galerie de minéralogie et de géologie provides an outstanding venue for your special events. Pass beneath the columned portico as the neoclassic style gallery opens its doors to your guests.

The Grande Nef

Behind a splendid rose garden, the long central hall of the neoclassical gallery is a jewel in itself, ideally suited for exclusive cocktail parties and dinners, outside visitor hours. It also provides a prestigious setting for fashion shows, tradeshows and showrooms.

Exceptional visiting conditions will delight your guests as they explore the heart of mineralogy, with or without a docent. Hundreds of minerals and twenty or so giant crystals are sure to arouse their curiosity.


Enjoy a prestigious setting full of history in the centre of Paris for your fashion shows, trade shows and showrooms. At 600 sq. m., the Grande Nef is able to accomodate high-end events, with a number of possible layouts, amongst themed displays that illustrate the beauty, diversity, shapes and colors found in gems and minerals.
