The last exhibitions of the year paired with some Christmas shopping spots in Paris

We listed some exhibitions that you should see before the end of the year and also some of our favorite addresses to do some shopping.

Of course we recommend you going to Leonard de Vinci’s exhibition at the Louvre Museum, if you haven’t already, this is a good time to do your reservation, don’t worry even if it is a huge success you still have some time to prepare your visit, the exhibition is going on until 24th of February 2020.


However there are some other exhibitions that are coming to their end and that we consider you should definitely see, we prepared a list for you, along with a shopping addresses list in case that you feel like doing some shopping at the same time, anyway you have already decided to take your coat and go out so why not?


Illuminated Ocean

Le Jardin des Plantes - Muséum national d'histoire naturelle - Place Valhubert, Paris 5th


A massive light sculptures exhibition takes place in the Botanical Garden of Paris, presenting huge Marine Animals to as an awareness campaign about the fragility of our oceans.

This is a naturally a kid’s friendly exhibition that we are sure you will enjoy too.



Our shopping spot next to this exhibition is the Truffaut store, the perfect place to leave with a Christmas three or some green gifts for your family and friends, just a 10-minute walk from the “Jardin des Plantes” entrance.


The world of Banksy

Until the end of December

Espace Lafayette - Drouot - 44 rue du Faubourg Montmartre, Paris 18th


This is 10 minutes walking from Galleries Lafayette and Printemps next to Opera Garnier where each year the window display of the stores sparks the same emotions on kids as a visit to Disneyland would do, at least the crowd gathering in front of them reminds us the park’s queues, what is actually something that we strongly recommend are the boutiques’ Gourmet Sections: Printemps du Goût and Galeries Lafayette Maison Gourmet,  where you will find the perfect gift for your friend “le plus gourmand” specialty coffe, specialty chocolate, MOF (Meilleur Ouvrier de France) Best Craftman of France awarded products and more.


Francis Bacon: Books and Painting

Until January 2020

Centre Pompidou - Place Georges Pompidou, Paris 4th


It must not be the most cheerful exhibition, but art is all about feelings; isn’t it?

This is one of those artists that either you like or you don’t, quite close to Les Halles shopping center if you are looking for an extensive choice of clothing stores or even closer (2minutes walk) the stores of Fleux on the street Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie where you will find accessories, deco objects, furniture, and other design that can be perfect gifts.


Boutique Fleux


Van Gogh, Starry Night
